One of the most traditional recipes in Dominican cookery. I'll post the salty version later. This is my mother in law's version.

San Antone Black Bean Salad

San Antone Black Bean Salad by Amos Miller

With friends and family living in the great state of Texas, my frequent visits have always meant new flavor profiles to experience, new ways to express myself in the kitchen and when I am invited out and asked to 'bring something to pass'. I developed the following recipe to assure that I would seldom have to carry home any…

Rich Sauce with White Eggplant & Herbs

Rich Sauce with White Eggplant & Herbs by Amos Miller

Eggplant has nothing to do with eggs - unless you dip and bread them. This sauce is a knockout! We grow 'Casper', an heirloom small, long white eggplant. It's mild in flavor and perfectly suited to thick, rich vegetable sauces. When cut into dime-to-quarter-sized disks, I have found Casper to be a perfect addition to other late…

Vegetable Lasagna

Vegetable Lasagna by Salad Foodie

Lasagna laced with garden vegetables makes a healthier pasta alternative to traditional lasagna. Don’t let the list of ingredients daunt you. I just consider it my afternoon therapy session. The veggies are cut in small pieces to layer better between noodles. As usual, this is way better the next day than the first (and even 2 or 3…

Delicious Edamame, Spinach Hummus

Delicious Edamame, Spinach Hummus by Skinny Kitchen with Nancy Fox

You'll just love this easy to make dip. It’s loaded with such good-for-you ingredients. Unlike most hummus, which is made mostly of garbanzo beans, tahini, garlic and olive oil, this ones unconventional. Our green colored hummus has garbanzo beans, garlic and hummus, but you’ll love the addition of edamame and fresh spinach. Talk…

Garbage Salad (not really)

Garbage Salad (not really) by Amos Miller

This salad will make the meal, or be the meal. Broccoli, oranges, almonds, raisins, mushrooms, onion & bacon - and a fabulous classic sweet & tangy creamy dressing! Vegetarians can substitute bac-o-bits, or not add a bacon substitute. Throwing together bits and pieces of a variety of items has long been the basis of some great…

Sauerkraut Salad

Sauerkraut Salad by A.L. Wiebe

Honestly, when a friend told me he had found this recipe in an old cookbook, I was a bit skeptical. He was bound and determined to make it, in spite of my turned-up nose, so I put my best manners forward and tasted it. It was delicious, and helped greatly to wash down the crow I was forced to eat!

Light, sweet and tart, this salad is a refreshing change from creamy coleslaws. This is a variation of Vinaigrette Coleslaw I - link below (see "Useful Links".) This salad is easily made diabetic-friendly by using a sweetening substitute such as Splenda, and reducing amount of oil.

Piccalilli Relish

Piccalilli Relish by Salad Foodie

The final harvest of green tomatoes I relegated to a batch of Piccalilli, a relish of East Indian origin. Just can't get enough of that lightly pungent and savory condiment....and it’s way easy to make using a food processor for most of the chopping tasks. Make a batch of this to give as holiday gifts, and to enjoy yourself through…
