    Re: Just Recipes

    I also tried that Asian Noodle Salad from post #575. It got mixed reviews in my house. The little kids (4 & 9) didn't care for it. My younger teen liked it, but only if it was served warm. My older teen and I liked it, but thought it needed more greens in proportion to the noodles. My issue is that I don't really care for noodles in salad, but this one looked so good I thought I would try it again. The dressing was great, so if I were to do it again I would probably make it more like a fresh Asian style coleslaw and leave out the noodles.

    I served it with a grilled teriyaki halibut that was fantastic! Just took a couple of fresh halibut steaks and drizzled a little teriyaki sauce on each side (a great sauce that I have had good experience with - Our Products : Soy Vay Enterprises, Inc., Sauces, Marinades, and Dressing). Then sprinkled with some pepper and garlic. Let it sit for about 5 mins and then put it on the grill, about 5 mins on each side. This I will definitely do again, YUM!

    Re: Just Recipes

    I looked up the recipe and, although I've not tried it, I think I'd prefer it without the noodles, too.
    Also, I'm not big on lots of cilantro. I can take a little, but any more and it just tastes like soap to me. Can you get away with just a little cilantro? She seemed like she drenched it in cilantro.

    YES! I forgot to mention that part. I used one full bunch of cilantro in the salad and none in the dressing. Everyone in my house still thought it was overpowering. I like cilantro a lot, but even I thought it was too much. I think 1/2 of a bunch in the salad would have been plenty for me. If you aren't a fan of cilantro I wouldn't hesitate to leave it out altogether, or maybe make it without and then separate a little bit to add the cilantro to so you can taste it as a trial run without adding it into the entire salad.

    Re: Just Recipes

    doxie the recipe makes alot of spread.



    Cucumber Sandwiches

    2 large loaves thinly sliced white bread, trimmed
    2 large package cream cheese
    3 large cucumbers, grated and drained (leave some peel on)
    2 tsp. grated onion (juice included)
    salt and pepper to taste
    5 Tbsp. mayonnaise (not level)

    Trim bread. Let cheese soften to room temperature. Mix cheese until very soft and creamy. Add grated cucumber which has been drained. Be sure to leave some green peeling for color. Add onion, salt, pepper and mayonnaise. Mix well. It is best to make the day before needed so it will chill and congeal. Spread on bread and cut in desired shapes.

    That sounds lovely inthegarden. My DH would snarf those down...guess I'm going to be buying some cukes today.
    I very much believe in rescuing animals, not buying them.

    Thanks ITG! That sounds yummy! I'm going to try that over the weekend. I'd already planned on making my beloved cream cheese and olive spread. Now, all I need are some cukes!

    8 cups rolled oats
    1 1/2 cups wheat germ
    1 1/2 cups ground flax
    1 cup sunflower seeds
    1 cup finely chopped almonds
    1 1/2 teaspoons salt
    1/2 cup brown sugar
    1/4 cup maple syrup
    3/4 cup honey
    1 cup vegetable oil
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    2 cups raisins or sweetened dried cranberries


    DIRECTIONS
    Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Line two large baking sheets with parchment or aluminum foil.
    Combine the oats, wheat germ, ground flax, sunflower seeds, and almonds in a large bowl. Stir together the salt, brown sugar, maple syrup, honey, oil, cinnamon, and vanilla in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, then pour over the dry ingredients, and stir to coat. Spread the mixture out evenly on the baking sheets.
    Bake in the preheated oven until crispy and toasted, about 20 minutes. Stir once halfway through. Cool, then stir in the raisins or cranberries before storing in an airtight
    I have a question. Actually a couple.
    I would love to make this, but don't want the added sugar. Can something be substituted for the brown sugar, honey and maple syrup?

    And can I get rolled oats in the grocery store? Are they the same as what you use in oatmeal cookies?

    Rolled oats is old fashioned oatmeal, MRD.
