So… I had full intentions of posting two recipes tonight, neither one of them being Caprese.
I thought I would share with you my Naw’lins Shrimp Po’ Boy to represent N.O. & Crook-Neck Squash and Zuccichni Ribbons, in honor of the opening day of regular season for the NFL when Green Bay hosts New Orleans. Fortunately, my plans changed and I took my daughter Emily to a ceramic paint studio, where we had a blast! One-on-one time is a rare occurence in our little family of six so I must take advantage of every opportunity 🙂
As it turns out, I decided to share my favorite side/salad recipe. This dish is the easiest thing to make, from start to finish, you might have all of five minutes of your time invested! I serve this often, an Italian menu is not in any way required. I even make this salad into a sandwich!
I will soon share my cajun sandwich-like (po-boy) meal with you.
Laugh often & Love much!
