Summer dinner

After blogging about beach menu ideas last night I had a craving for Green Goddess dressing.  I whipped up some in the blender and we had that on sliced tomatoes to accompany our crab salad.  Dinner was made even more special because my friend Karen surprised me with a loaf of her out of this world homemade focaccia.  It was just the thing – she gave me the recipe and I’ll try it out soon.  Here is what we had tonight:

Crab salad

  • 1 lb crabmeat
  • 1 tsp celery salt or 1 stalk celery minced
  • 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 TB lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise

Drain crabmeat and place in a small bowl.  Gently pick over for shells.  Sprinkle with celery salt, Worcestershire sauce and lemon juice and toss to combine.  Add mayonnaise and stir in with a spatula, taking care not to break up lumps of crabmeat.  Chill until ready to serve on top of lettuce and sliced tomatoes.

Green Goddess Dressing

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup parsley
  • 1/4 cup chives
  • 2 TB scallion greens
  • 1 1/2 tsp anchovy paste (use this even if you think you don’t like anchovies)  🙂
  • 1 tsp white wine vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic
Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth.

I love to cook and love to eat. I work full time and have a family so managing good meals during the week requires organization. I'm hoping to share my weekly menu plans and recipes to make things a little easier for those who want to follow along.
