This recipe came from Bon Appetit no telling how long ago. An easy, easy salad and a nice green addition to your Thanksgiving table.
One more recipe from my AJC archives ….
Even in winter I like dinner salads – especially those with cheese and nuts and fruit. This adaptation of a traditional Waldorf salad combines some of my favorite ingredients. The honey mustard dressing is a nice foil for the richness of smoked Gouda and the sweet crunch of the apples. Use all one variety of apple or mix them for contrasting flavors and colors. Substitute Swiss cheese for the Gouda if you’re not fond of smoked cheeses.
The recipe for Japanese Curry Rice comes from Marc Matsumoto of norecipes.com. He says: “ I make almost everything I post without a recipe. I think cooking is most fun and innovative when you just wing it. I do recognize that not everyone is as adventurous as me, so I post the ingredients and method to give you a starting point.”
So in that spirit, substitute okra for the carrots, thinly sliced green beans for the peas, use applesauce instead of the fresh apple, or make any other substitutions that appeal to you.. You could skip the protein and still have a lovely meal.
This recipe comes from Scott Serpas, opening chef for Two Urban Licks and now proprietor of his own establishment, Serpas True Food, in Old Fourth Ward. I think it’s a great transitional dish. Substitute a second apple, maybe a different variety, for the avocado, if you wish.
