Summer is here. Usually our food desires turn to lighter things. This week, I want to share with you two salad recipes from Cannon's Restaurant. Here's the Uptown Salad.
2 heads iceberg lettuce, cleaned and chopped
1 head romaine lettuce, cleaned and chopped
Mix lettuce together and keep cold.
1 1/2 cups Cheddar cheese, shredded
1 1/2 cups Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
Mix the cheeses together and keep cold.
8 ounces ham, cubed
8 ounces smoked turkey, cubed
2 cups croutons
1 cup boiled eggs, chopped
Green onions, chopped
To build your salads, place lettuce in 4 separate chilled bowls. Top with your favorite dressing. Then, place in order: croutons, cheese mixture, egg, ham, and turkey. Garnish with green onions and serve.
Creole & Cajun Comfort Food is now available online in both Hardback and Paperback versions.
