This is a fresh and hearty salad. As others suggested, I cut back on the salt. Instead of adding lemon and EVOO to the bulgur while it cooked, I cooked the bulgur only with 1c boiling water. I added the juice of 2 lemons and 2 tbsp EVOO to the prepared bulgur along with the rest of the ingredients. I think it made the lemon flavor much more pr"

This is so delicious!! I added in about 4 fresh sage leaves with the shallot. Added a nice flavor. I also used 1/2 and 1/2 instead of heavy cream. This sauce makes regular (and in my case, cheap) cheese ravioli taste like a million bucks! No need to buy the pumpkin ravioli...this tastes the same."

Absolutely delicious. Like other reviewers, I cut back on the cinnamon and nutmeg by about half. Even with this smaller amount, the addition of these two spices really deepened the flavor of this delicious sauce. Since I had the time, I did reduce for about 4 hours which created a thicker sauce (which I prefer). Since I was just making this f...

WOW! Just made this for the second time in the past two weeks. This is one of the easiest and most delicious dishes I have ever made. The success of this truly lies in a QUALITY piece of meat, which costs a pretty penny but is well worth it. I have tried once with the goat cheese on top and once with crumbled blue cheese on top - both were unbelievable....

Just made these for supper and they were very good. I really liked the dressing, but I wished it were a little bit thicker. It kept dripping everywhere we were eating them. I would definitely make these again and maybe even try with shredded chicken instead of shrimp. This was a fantastic low-cal/low-carb recipe that the family felt healthy e...

Just used this method to make chicken saltimbocca. Replaced veal with chicken and then made a pan sauce using shallots, white wine, chicken stock, capers and tomatoes. Let simmer a couple minutes and then add chicken back in to finish cooking. After a couple minutes, remove chicken, run a pat of butter through the pan to finish the sauce. Absolutely...

Just made this and it is delicious! I added chicken-flavored couscous to bulk it up and its just wonderful. I also upped the amount veggies and added a slash of lemon juice, which really woke up the flavors. This is SO fresh-tasting! Can't wait until tomorrow when it will be even better!
