    Just saying…

    A salad in not a meal.  It is a style.  ~ Fran Lebowitz Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.   Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.  ~Miles Kington It takes four men to dress a salad: a wise man for the salt, a madman for the pepper, a miser for the vinegar, and a spendthrift for the oil.” ~ anonymous “my salad days, When I was green in judgement, cold in blood.” ~ William Shakespeare

    Fresh Sweet Corn Tips

    Always shuck your sweetcorn at the very last minute. Pull off the silks (the hairy stuff), then strip off the husks. Boil a large pot of water, add salt…lots of salt. Reduce water to a simmer and drop in the corn cobs for 15-20 minutes. Strain the corn cobs and slather in butter and more salt. (Lower calorie alternative: don’t slather with butter but drizzle cooked cobs with olive oil and sprinkle with cilantro or parsley). Eat like there is no tomorrow!

    Eggplant Cooking Tip!

      Eggplants absorb a good deal of oil during frying, but salt can help to minimize that.  Slice your eggplant in the way you intend to cook them (into rounds or lengthwise), then place them in a strainer.  Generously sprinkle with salt, and let them stand for about an hour.  Rinse well and pat dry with paper towels right before frying.
