We just received a new cookbook at the store, Smoky Mountain Magic, from The Junior League of Johnson City, Tennessee. Wow! This one is packed with over 300 pages of wonderful recipes. After last week, I really feel the need to share something healthier, so here is a salad recipe that you can easily prepare with low- or no-fat ingredients for a healthy and tasty addition to your well-rounded meal.
Apple-Swiss Cheese Salad
2 C cubed Jonathan apples (or any tasty red apples)
1 C shredded Swiss cheese
1/2 C chopped dates
1/2 C chopped celery
1 C shredded or finely chopped cabbage
1 T horseradish
2/3 C mayonnaise
Combine apples, cheese, dates, celery, and cabbage. Mix horseradish with mayonnaise and toss gently into salad. Serve on a bed of crisp lettuce. Serves 4.
Oh, man, I’ve got to stop doing this before lunch ~ unless I’ve prepared and brought the dish with me to eat! This just makes my mouth water. One page over in the recipe book I noticed a favorite of my family, Cucumber Mousse ~ yuuuuuummmmmy right down to the Worcestershire sauce…did you ever think to put those two ingredients together? It works.
Call and ask for item 276008 – I’m getting ahead of the game with some of these cookbooks, sorry!
