Wanted to pass on a recipe (that I kind of made up) for a warm salad. Not sure quite what to call it, I should ask Chuck to come up with a good name, he is creative. This idea came from trying to mix up some of our produce from our crop share program that I mentioned earlier. One of the reasons I wanted to do this crop share, was to force me to widen my recipe repertoire.
I made some bow tie pasta to use as a main filler (to make the meal stretch).
I cooked up some red potatoes and green onions with oil (or butter) and tossed with fresh rosemary. To make this go a little faster I cooked them in the microwave for a few min. (They almost had the consistency of breakfast potatoes).
I add these to toasted pine nuts, raisins, and a diced cooked chicken breast, cooked broccoli (or asparagus). Then I added fresh greens and tossed with olive oil and grated fresh Parmesan cheese.
I have made this a few times now and everyone seems to love it. I think the pine nuts really make it taste great. Hope you are inspired.
