The Best Seared Pepper Salad

This Dill Havarti Cheese with Seared Pepper Salad is a real refreshing way to shake up your everyday greens.  It’s got a wonderful blend of ingredients that make every bite explode with flavor.  This recipe, in particular, was voted as one of New York’s top twenty must have dishes a few years ago.  That alone sparked my interest in preparing this for myself and when I tried it, I knew I had to film it.

This Ricotta Salad with Fresh Veggies, Mint and Lime is another great way to enjoy a healthy lifestyle.  So if you’re looking to supplement a diet or just enjoy something tasty, this is the salad for you.  It’s got blanched Sugar Snap Peas, sliced Bell Peppers and Baby Kale Leaves that add plenty of vitamins and protein.  It’s also a nice way to kick off a fancy barbecue, if you’re into that sort of thing.  Personally I like to change things up and, hopefully, you do too.

Seafood and Crab

Seafood and Crab

Seafood and Crab Everything!

If you don’t know or haven’t realized by now, Seafood and Crab can go with just about anything.  You can find it in Sushi, Cold Noodle Salads, Cheese Dips for chips or crackers and Sub Sandwich’s like the photo I’ve got here in this article.  The list goes on and on.  Of course it isn’t real Crab Meat though either.  It’s made from imitation crab which consists of mostly Alaskan Pollock, egg whites and red food coloring.  I guess the Pollock is what classifies it as “Seafood” even though there isn’t any real crab.  But the recipe for Seafood and Crab is not so confusing and serves as the basic front line for dozens of other recipes to boot.  Here I make a real basic sub sandwich that would normally have Tomatoes, Banana Peppers and olives on it as well if I were using a bigger loaf.  But I use the basics just to show you how you can still get your fix by just using a few ingredients.

Seafood and Crab Ingredients:

2 cups Imitation Crab meat
2 chopped Green Onions
1 chopped Garlic Clove
1 cup Mayonnaise
1 tbsp Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper to taste

Just mix all the ingredients together at once in one bowl and add the Seafood and Crab to your favorite recipe or dish.
