Reviewed Salade Nicoise
"Made it and loved it, even though I couldn't find Nicoise olives anywhere in town and had to sub stronger-tasting Kalamatas. Next time I think I'll try KDUB74's idea of adding a little anchovy paste too, that sounds really good.
Melissa D really knows her rustic French-style seasonings and techniques, I love most of her recipes that I've tried."
Reviewed French Onion Soup
"Melissa D, you rock!!! DELICIOUS, just as Melissa made it, all of my guests were raving. Soup’s flavor was so intense, it was lovely.Salade Nicoise trick of blending the olives into the dressing was great, olive flavor permeated the salad without overpowering it.Only problem was I couldn’t find Nicoise olives anywhere in town, so subbed Kalamatas (which are a stronger in flavor, so cut the quantity slightly).
Served some French-themed hors d’oeuvres first (Smoked Salmon & Caper Triangles from Chatelaine, and Green Olive & Artichoke Tapenade from Moosewood, with a nice lemony Sauvignon Blanc), then paired dinner with a bottle of Coppola’s A Votre Sante Pinot Noir (which is more Old World Burgundy style than a lot of our USA Pinot Noirs); turned out to be a good match."
