Decorated eggs are a symbol of Easter and often synonymous with the Easter Egg Hunts, chocolate Easter eggs, and Easter baskets and chicks.  Deviled eggs are a popular menu item for Easter Dinners.  The mixed greens blog.com/2009/07/22/seasons-eating-what-is-deviled-egg/ did the research on the meaning of deviled.  In 18th century England any food that had a spicy condiment was referred to as ‘deviled’.  Mustard is the spicy condiment in cookbookinabox® recipe of Roasted Red Pepper Deviled Eggs.

 Gourmet Spinach-Romaine Lettuce Salad

My first “gourmet salad”, Spinach-Romaine Lettuce Salad, big time and new idea in 1978.  Bon Appétit was probably the originator of this recipe.  At that time mixing fresh mushrooms and oranges in salad was being original.  How times have changed!  No longer do we expect  the same foods being served together.  An example:  meat loaf made with ground beef, served with white mashed potatoes, gravy and green beans with iceberg lettuce salad. Consider a new take on the same menu:  meat loaf made with ground turkey, risotto , Brussels sprouts with pearl onions and sesame seeds and pear salad.

Diversity of our neighborhoods and communities have made diversity in the foods we eat and have available at our grocers and Farmer’s Market.  In my city  there are multiple Asian and Hispanic grocery stores  in addition to the chain and big box stores that offer a variety of foods to meet the needs of most nationalities and for those just wanting to learn new recipes and tastes to broaden our understanding of flavors, cooking, and even cultures.

This recipe is not exotic nor in 2015 is it very ”gourmet” or different.  It is a salad that is great in the winter time with the oranges and the current fad of bacon on everything.  This is just a reminder of ingredients with a different mix,  ago-to recipe to add to your collection. Enjoy.
