A gourmet grilled mushroom sandwich will have your burger-loving friends drooling with envy. Portobello mushroom caps, buffalo mozzarella cheese slices, roasted red pepper, grilled onions, basil, and fresh tomato top toasted buns.
Mussels are topped with a rich curry butter, sealed in foil packets, and grilled until done in this terrific recipe. They're so delicious! I serve these as an appetizer with warm, crusty bread for dunking followed by a big green salad topped with grilled chicken or shrimp for an easy summertime meal.
Yowzers! Sweet and hot salsa with tangy mangoes and habaneros. Great with pork, chicken or fish or just with chips. You can omit the habaneros and add red bell peppers for a non-spicy version, but then again, why would you want to? Remember, ALWAYS wear gloves when working with habaneros!
Much like the N'awlins muffuletta, this is a large sandwich layered in a round loaf of crusty bread. You can be flexible and vary the cold cuts that you use according to personal preference! Must be done a day ahead, which makes for an easy serve.
A crusty rosemary bread works nicely for this classic Italian salad. The bread - pulled into bite-sized pieces - tomatoes, cucumbers and red onions, are tossed with fresh herbs and just enough vinegar and oil to give them a nice glistening. Four generous servings.
This is a recipe that my friends love and ask for again and again! I serve it with a crusty loaf of bread and salad. All ingredients are approximate and you should vary according to your own individual tastes!
