First, let me tell all Vegans out there that this is not a Vegan post….no really, that’s not what I wanted to tell you…. but it isn’t a Vegan post. What I wanted to tell you is… there is a terrific new APP for the iphone called the Vegan Recipe Finder. This is also good for all you “Meatless Monday” bloggers as well.
More than 13,000 vegan recipes and more added daily. What a find!
This week on cooking with Ellie..
The original recipe uses CHICKEN and was chosen by Danica of Danica’s Daily. I could not resist two beautiful tuna steaks available fresh from our fish guy so I went with tuna instead of chicken. Make sure to check with Danica to see a beautiful presentation of this recipe.
A standing ovation goes out to Ellie Krieger. The burst of flavor that explodes in your mouth upon taking the first bite of this salad is an unforgettable sensation.
The ingredients I used: 2 lbs of tuna instead of chicken. The tuna was rubbed with a grill seasoning and drizzled with fresh lime juice before hitting the grill. 1 pint of cherry tomatoes instead of 2 pints of grape tomatoes. I used 1 cup of corn and 1 cup of peas and carrots. The rest of the ingredients looked really good to me so no changes needed.
While Ted was grilling, I heated olive oil in a pan over medium heat and added the salad ingredients to cook and serve along side of the tuna.
I’m sure I’ve said this before, but this time I really mean it: This is one of Ellie’s best ALL TIME recipes. That will make a reappearance time and again on our table.
Danica, congratulations on a great pick of the week. Hats off to you.
