Tongs are an Extension of your Hand Friday, April 13, 2018


Tongs are an extension of your hand. 

Chef's Tip:
Walk into any restaurant kitchen and you'll see a set of tongs in almost every cook's hand — usually gripped low down on the handle for maximum control. Use it to flip meat, pull a pan out of the oven, stabilize a steak while slicing, the list goes on and on.

Here is Carol’s favourite kale salad.  I loved it mostly because I can hardly taste the kale, haha!  If you love the nutrition of healthy kale but not in love with the taste this recipe is perfect for you.  Don't forget to serve with tongs!

Crazy Kale Salad

1 head of Kale (greener is better) stripped off stems and chopped or sliced

1 red pepper, chopped

1/2 red onion, chopped

1/2 can black pitted olives, sliced

1/2 cup cilantro chopped fine

1/2 cup (or more) feta cheese, crumbled

1 avocado, cut into bite-size pieces,

Mix above ingredients in a large salad bowl.

(You can chop the onion and red pepper with the dice blade of the Bosch Slicer/ shredder)


Here is where we cheat just a little

1/2 jar Lighthouse Blue Cheese dressing/dip

juice of 1 lime

1 tsp. tarragon leaves chopped

Mix dressing and add to salad and let sit at least 1/2 hour. This salad will not wilt and actually gets better tasting with age. I love to eat it the next day and it is just as good.
