BLUE CHEESE SALAD

I think it’s the salad dressing I like most about this recipe.  Unusually the salad itself has peanuts in it – personally I think they’d be a bit too big and crunchy, pine nuts might be a better idea or you could just make whatever salad you like and top it with the blue cheese dressing.

This recipe serves 2, but it would be easy enough to double it and serve it as an entree at a dinner party, especially as you could prepare it beforehand and then cook it at the last minute.

VINE LEAVES WITH PINE NUTS AND CURRANTS

A fabulous flavour of Greece or so the Women’s Weekly said in it’s Let’s Go Greek supplement back in 1992.  Don’t think anyone would disagree with that statement.  Always a favourite at a Greek restaurant, but by the look of this recipe pretty easy to make at home as well.

MINI VEGIE AND CHEESE FRITTATAS

It’s Grand Prix weekend here in Melbourne this weekend.  My husband is a F1 fan and we not only go to the race here every year, but also have been lucky enough to go to several races overseas.  As you’d expect the food on sale at the track varies from country to country.   So far, unsurprisingly, Italy has had the best.  Here in Melbourne it’s all pretty much heavy duty fried things so I usually take a lighter lunch for us.  Tomorrow I’m making these Frittatas to take……..
