Caker steaming: Reader Recipe: Lime Cheese Salad
I can’t consider three phrases that haven’t any enterprise being strung collectively greater than lime, cheese and salad.
Ian despatched me this recipe for what he calls a “glistening, jiggling and milky-green caker traditional.” Lime Cheese Salad has been part of his household’s Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners for as lengthy he can keep in mind. He reckons the recipe was handed over to his mother by his Nice Aunt Doris. (Is it me, or does each caker household have a Nice Aunt Doris?)
I wasn’t wanting ahead to this as a result of y’all know that whereas I can get with a variety of issues, I can’t get with JELL-O, greens and marannaise. However I made it and…it wasn’t half unhealthy. It was tangy, the pineapple supplied a touch of sweetness and the almonds gave it a pleasant crunch. The carrots, however, have been like that man who sits throughout from you within the employees lunchroom and chews together with his mouth open. Not welcome.
That formally brings Reader Recipe Month to an in depth. Because of everybody who despatched in a recipe. Sorry I couldn’t get to all of them, however I’ll endeavor to make – and put up – each single one within the coming months. Promise. Come again Monday for some nice intercourse. Sure, you learn that proper.
