Recipe Exchange I- Appetizers
Recipe Exchange II- Soups, salads, and salad dressings



I have no soup recipes because I eat very little soup. Usually it has a red and white label. But if anyone has a really terrific French onion soup recipe, I'd like it.

And Sister C would like salad dressing recipes.

My favorite salad is spinach with some craisins, feta cheese and chunks of granny smith apple. I'm a ranch dressing person, so that's what I use on it, but other dressings would work too.

I thought you meant homemade dressings. And I could have sworn there's been mention here before about some. I think by some of the guys that make their own. gwp maybe. Josephus maybe. Seems like KtC might. I thought Ace did.

My wife made this the other day so I'll paste it. Really a good soup and didn't take her long. She gets a lot of recipes from Food Networks Website to try on me. She bookmarked it so I know she liked it too.
Potato, Spinach and Tomato Soup

3 cloves crushed or finely chopped garlic
1 large onion, chopped
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 quarts chicken broth
3 pounds all purpose potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
1 pound fresh triple washed spinach, stems picked and coarsely chopped
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg, grated or ground
Salt and pepper
1 (28-ounce) can chunky-style crushed tomatoes or diced tomatoes in puree
1/2 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano or Romano

In a deep pot, saute garlic and onion in oil for 2 or 3 minutes. Add broth and bring liquid to a boil. As you slice potatoes, add them carefully to the broth. Cook potatoes 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. The potatoes will begin to break up and thicken broth as the soup cooks. Stir in spinach in bunches as it wilts into soup. Season soup with nutmeg, salt and pepper, to your taste. Stir in tomatoes and heat through, 1 or 2 minutes. Remove pot from the stove to a trivet. Stir grated cheese into your soup and serve.

She normally uses fresh tomatos in soup but this time used Del Monte Italian Diced Tomato in the can. It had spice but not too much.

Here's another that she has bookmarked. We lost our computers in the fire and she lost all her marked recipes. The last few days she has been searching for her favorites that were on the Food Network. These were the only two soups that she has bookmarked so far. We've had this one many times. We don't do the bread part in this recipe. She did for company one time but not just for us. Taste just as good to eat bread along with it.

Corn and Crab Chowder

1 tablespoon vegetable oil or extra-virgin olive oil, 1 turn of the pan in a slow stream
2 tablespoons butter
2 all-purpose potatoes, peeled and diced
2 ribs celery, chopped
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
1 small red bell pepper, seeded and diced
1 bay leaf, fresh or dried
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon Old Bay seasoning blend, found near seafood department or, on spice aisle in your market
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 cups vegetable or chicken stock or broth
1 quart whole milk
3 cups corn kernels, scraped fresh from the cob or, frozen kernels
8 ounces cooked lump crab meat, fresh is available in plastic tubs at many fish counters
4 small bread boules, 6 inches, hollowed out, preferably sour dough, optional

Toppings:
Oyster crackers
Hot cayenne pepper sauce
Sliced scallions

Heat a deep pot over moderate heat. Add oil and butter. As you chop your veggies, add them to the pot: potatoes, celery, onion, and red bell pepper. Add bay leaf to the pot. Season vegetables with salt and pepper and Old Bay seasoning. Saute veggies 5 minutes, then sprinkle in flour. Cook flour 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Stir in broth and combine. Stir in milk and combine. Bring soup up to a bubble. Add corn and crab meat and simmer soup 5 minutes. Adjust the soup seasonings. Remove bay leaf. Ladle soup into bread bowls or soup bowls and top with oyster crackers, hot sauce and sliced scallions.

If I could do what?
First, I don't understand what you're suggesting. If you mean combine these two, I think that's going to be way too long of a thread eventually.
Of if you mean something else, I wouldn't know how to do it. But explain, someone probably does.

I think he means to put links to all the threads in the first post. You can edit your first post and add just what he typed above (do a reply on his post and copy from the word "Recipes" to the end.

That would be a nice and easy way to find them if it were on the first of each Recipe thread.

Frozen fruit salad:
Very easy...
1 large bag of frozen mixed fruit.
1 small can frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed.

Dump frozen fruit in a large bowl. Break apart any clumps of fruit. Dress with 1/2 can of orange juice (Do not add water!) Toss to coat fruit. Allow fruit to partially thaw before serving.

The fruit will have a soft, slushy texture. Great for a hot day!

Yummy! I'm all about the spinach/strawberry salad too. My usual is:

Spinich, strawberries (or grapes), sliced almonds, bell pepper, green onions, tomato, feta cheese, and sometimes carrots.

I use the Sunkist Almond Accents from teh produce section. There are flavors like Roasted Garlic Ceasar and Honey Roasted. We've also recently tried Fresh Gourmet Crispy Onions: Garlic pepper flavor. Very good in salad.

My favorite dressings are the Brianna's brand Poppyseed and the Raspberry vinagrette.
