Yum. I used london broil, because it's what I had, and that was a good choice, sliced very thin. I made some broccoli/onion/red pepper stir fry on the side, and that was a good way of "stretching" without messing with the recipe itself. Delicious.""

Delicious. I have to admit that I didn't have garlic or onion powder, so I just used some creole seasoning I had on hand (first ingredient cayenne. What's most important is the technique of the citrus marinade and sauce. That was great. The onions were a great touch! Also reduced the salt. And added a tsp of turbinado sugar to the sauce""

Delicious! I used what I had on hand: 1 large half breast (more than enough chicken), red thai curry paste (just 2 tsp), and "lite" coconut milk.

I did take some liberties: I used my ancient Sunbeam hand mixer with the wide beaters because my arm wasn't strong enough, and I didn't wait to 110--I started beating...

The dressing is amazing, and I like the combination. The only problem is that the apples overwhelm the other ingredients. I would reduce apples and increase greens.

Too much garlic, in my opinion. The curry is on the light side, so folks shouldn't be afraid of it. Depending on the age of the peas, you might want to soak them for a bit. The ones I had, although purchased freshly, were still a little crunchy after an hour's simmer. I usually make my pea soup with marjoram, thyme, bay leaf, and carrots and I think...
