Okay...
1- 1/2 cup plain unsweetened yogurt
2 teaspoons dried parsley
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder (start with
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
3/4 teaspoon vinegar
salt to taste, I like mine kind of salty because the salad has no salt.
Enjoy!

Very nice! hi5.gif I bought a big ass bag of eggplants today for 99 cents a kilo. It's an excellent pasta substitute.


Also want to mention my Hungarian Pork Chops. They are the most tender chops you'd ever dream of.

First off, saute cabbage and onion until soft. Fry chops on really high heat for a short time, just to give them a nice color. Throw them in with the cabbage and put water in the skillet you used for the chops to cover the meat and cabbage. Add salt and spices. Simmer for a couple of hours. When it's done I usually add some sauerkraut for acidity and flavor. It's simple and tastes great.

The Hungarian chops are so tender you can just breathe them in, and the taste is fantastic.

With a little extra effort one can save money by buying dried beans and soaking them overnight, then add to stews, salads etc.

Yes absolutely! I never buy canned beans. Also good to remember that some cans are lined with plastic that contains Bisphenol-A which is not a very good thing to consume. damned.gif

I'm thinking a nice light yogurt dressing would go well with your salad, Shadow.

Didn't use any dressing, there's plenty of nice flavor without. Don't add dressing 'til you've tried it. Just a dribble of olive oil and some pepper. I didn't rinse the brine off the feta either, that's all the salt you need. Chopped the watermelon and cucumber into ~1 cm pieces. I do recommend it cheers.gif

thumbsup.gif Octo, but it's work and I am trying to cut work out of my life, not add to it. Maybe I'll give it whirl when I retire. cheers.gif
