I have brought back an old favorite--the Salad Sundae. The idea is to make a variety of scoopable salads, and allow guest to build their own salad, choosing three different favorites. My original featured a Blueberry Chicken Salad, a Minted Cottage Cheese and a pretty Egg Salad. Those are still great choices. If you plan on serving guests, offering 5 or 6 different salads enables you to please every palate. In this month's Diner News, I have recipes for four new scoopables. Enticingly different, the Sundae above features Spring Radish Salad, Tarragon Chicken Salad and Thai Tuna Salad. I also have a Guacamole Chicken Salad that is delicious. What a salad buffet all of these would make! Just be sure to get the really fun banana split dishes. I see them at the thrift store quite often.
Luncheons are perfect for interesting salads. I also have a couple of gorgeous salads that feature berries. Men may like them, but the girls will love the asparagus, spinach, fennel, cucumber and avocado. At my house, this is definite girl food.
We all know that we girls love our desserts. Earlier in the month, I introduced the Lemony Lime Cheesecake on the blog. Add to that another showstopper dessert--a chocolate and peanut butter pie. So decadent and rich! Drops and swirls of chocolate sauce make it special. I replicated a popular French pastry called "Financiers" which are sheer perfection with toasted almond and browned butter. I blogged about them yesterday. And don't forget the cute factor with Tiny Tea Cakes. Pretty happens with a blackberry coconut cupcake.
