...it's a mystery, wrapped in an enigma, wrapped in bacon...mmmmmmm....
Deviled Egg Salad:
Salt n pepper
3 or 4 Stalks of celery, including leaves
Boil eggs ( I used a dozen) let cool, peel and chop them with the celery. Add herbs and spices (juist a LITTLE horseradish!) Add 3 parts mayo, 1 part sour cream, 1 part dijon mustard, stir until lumpy. Adjust seasonings as needed.
1 block of cream cheese, softened
1 can salmon, drained and bones removed (your pussy will be very happy!)
Blend salmon into cream cheese gradually, adding dill unitl it seems about right. Store in a plastic box with a lid. Serve with crackers or bagels.
Grilled cheddar and tomato on wheat.
Cream cheese -n- olive on an Everything bagel.
Peanut butter and cucumber.
Egg salad with lettuce on pumpernickel.
sliced avocado, muenster cheese, alfalfa sprouts on 12 grain bread spread with Caesar dressing.
add tomato or cucumber slices.
subtract Caesar dressing; use tatziki instead.
tatziki dressing : (much more complicated than the Troll Itself)
the secret to make thick gyro sauce.... moisture (water) will make the sauce run thin.
8 oz. plain yogurt (not low-fat)
1 medium cucumber
1/8 teaspoon white pepper or 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon white sugar
2 tablespoon dill
2 peeled garlic cloves, finely minced
Juice of 1/2 lemon
The night before making Tzatziki, place the yogurt in a paper towel lined strainer over another bowl and leave it in the fridge overnight. This thicker yogurt-cheese is the perfect consistency for Tzatziki. This step is not necessary if using Greek yogurt.
Peel and seed the cucumber. Place the cucumbers in a strainer over a bowl and cover with salt. This will leech out a lot of the water and help assure you have a thick sauce.
Place chopped cucumber in a small bowl
stir in garlic , lemon juice, salt, sugar, black pepper, dill.
Gently blend in yogurt; do not over-mix.
Cover bowl and immediately place in refrigerator
leave undisturbed for 24 hours so the ingredients blend and sauce re-thickens (keep chilled)
Makes about 2 cups
