Here are a few of the recipes from our girls weekend away*** Mary was kind enough to share hers***
TANGY APPLE SALAD
2 large Granny Smith apples, cored and thinly sliced
1/4 cup dried cranberries or cherries
2 green onions
2 tbsp. dark agave syrup ( or honey)
1 tbsp. whole-grain mustard1 garlic clove minced
1. In a medium bowl, combine apples, cranberries, onions, syrup, mustard and garlic, toss to combine. Cover and refrigerate several hours.2. Place salad on a bed of watercress, if desired, and serve.
PROSCIUTTO WRAPPED CHICKEN BREAST STUFFED WITH GOAT CHEESE
6 chicken breasts ( I used boneless and pounded them flat)
1 cup fresh goat cheese to which you add in and mix 1 tablespoon fresh chopped oregano leaves and 1 tablespoon of maple syrup, 1 teaspoon lemon zest and ground pepper to taste
Make a horizontal cut in each chicken breast to create a pocket and stuff with cheese mixture. (I found it easier to pound the breast flat, spread the cheese mixture on top and then roll up tightly)
Season outside of chicken with pepper and then roll 2 pieces of Prosciutto around breast tightly and then wrap in plastic wrap. If using boneless chicken, secure with toothpicks, being careful to remove when serving.Preheat grill to medium, indirect heat (350).
I placed the chicken in a grill safe pre-greased foil pan and then placed directly on grill. This way there is no concern of burning or loosing your cheese mixture as it melts. If you are brave place directly on a well greased grill.Cooking time will vary, likely 15-30 minutes, depending on the size of your breast.Let meat rest 5 minutes before serving. Boneless breasts can be cut into slices prior to serving,
1 1/2 pounds crabmeat
1 cup panko crumbs
1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
1/2 cup finely chopped green onion3
1 teaspoon worchestire
2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill or parsley or coriander
1 large beaten egg
Grilled corn kernels is a nice option.
Mix all together and form into patties.
Mix a little melted butter with panko and coat patties on all sides.
Grill on 350 degree preheated BBQ. I suggest on a grill foil pan so that if the cakes break apart you don't loose any crab.Be sure to flip carefully, once, until golden.
Serve with any fresh fruit salsa
