Cowboy Caviar

Cowboy Caviar by Lynn Yamamoto Dalman

This is fresh, healthy and delicious. People love it, even kids. You can make it ahead, so it's great for a summer party. Serve it with scoop-shaped tortilla chips, or have it on the side as a relish. I add extra cilantro, because there can never be too much cilantro!

Cajun Crowder Beans

Cajun Crowder Beans by Amos Miller

Also known as Crowder peas, these delicious little fellas can often be found in frozen form at the store. These are fresh picked right here in Michigan and, like fava beans and so many other seasonal treats, we rush them to the table. Crowders are really a 'Southern' treat and I first enjoyed them when visiting relatives in West…

Hummus

Hummus by Frosted Flaker

This is a great snack for any time of year. I personally serve it with Kalamata olives and sometimes even diced cucumber and/or bell pepper. Keep in mind that after blending, fine-tuning the mixture with slightly more tahini and/or lemon juice is often needed (see step 3). As a footnote, tahini is what gives the hummus its creamy…

Armenian Red Lentil Balls - Vospov Kheyma

Armenian Red Lentil Balls - Vospov Kheyma by John Spottiswood

Traditionally, Kheyma is a made with meat (raw beef patty). However, during Lent many Armenians prefer Vospov Kheyma as a vegetarian alternative. Our friends the Bedrosians brought these over as an appetizer last night. He said it was a bit spicier than his mother usually made, but we all thought they were perfect. If you want less…

SAMBAL & CUCUMBER FINGER SANDWICHES

SAMBAL & CUCUMBER FINGER SANDWICHES by Linda Tay Esposito

The British have their dainty cucumber sandwich....eaten with raised pinkies. Malaysia, a former British colony, added a little a lot of spice to the cucumber sandwich, and came up with the sambal sandwich. We made this sandwich in our Asian Mini Sandwiches class at Whole Foods recently and it was a hit! The butter softens the spice…

Texas Caviar (Bean & Corn Salsa or Salad) by Salad Foodie

If I need black-eyed peas for good luck on New Year's day, I prefer to get them in Texas Caviar....a.k.a. Cowboy Caviar.....a.k.a. Southern Caviar...a.k.a. Bean and Corn Salsa. There's as many names for this as there are variations. This makes 8 cups and serves a huge hungry crowd - think Super Bowl Sunday. It also keeps well.…
