This is a crunchy, wonderfully satisfying salad that is fabulous with grilled chicken, leftover from yesterday 's barbecue. The dressing is sweet and sour, mingling brown sugar with soy sauce and rice wine vinegar. Fried rice noodles add the crunch. Serves six.
I created this soup after becoming tired of the excess salt and lack of veggies in canned minestrone. I recalled a great bowl of minestrone that was overflowing with rich vegetables at the 'Sheepherder's Inn' in Sacramento, California. Great with a hearty bread, romaine salad and a nice Merlot!
This is a great salad with lots of taste sensations - strawberries, mandarin oranges, red onions, and tomatoes. The poppy seed dressing is very different; it is made with honey, cherry juice, lemon juice, and mayonnaise.
