Don't even think about packing a picnic or leaving town this Memorial Day weekend, or any weekend this summer for that matter, without this tried-and-true, friend-favorite recipe for my Tarragon Shrimp Salad Rolls. So simple and they travel so well, you can enjoy these tasty treats at the park, by the pool, on the boat or wherever your long weekend plans take you. Find the recipe below, and as a bonus, I also included a crisp green bean salad recipe that you can pair with this dish to make a lovely, summery meal. No reheating required! Happy Memorial Day!
Mayo is one of my favorite foods. I almost hate to admit that because I know plenty of people who despise mayonnaise, but c'est la vie! As with almost all of my favorite foods, I enjoy making it from scratch. It happens that I am fairly picky about mayo because I grew up addicted to the most popular store-bought brand and it's been a hard formula to replicate in my own kitchen. After lots of trial and many errors, I've come up with a reliably tasty recipe and method for creating my feel-good, DIY, wholesome mayonnaise to satisfy even my pickiest of taste buds.
If you know me, you know I don't often bake. The precision, the focus, the waiting....it's just not my preference when it comes to time in the kitchen. So on the rare occasion when I do bake, it's gotta be pretty easy and the end result has to be really rewarding. Which is why I love this Rhubarb & Dried Cherry Crisp recipe. I served this for dessert at my recent Pop-Up dinner and it was a total hit, so by popular demand, I'm sharing the recipe here. Perfect timing for you to pick up some fresh rhubarb at the Farmer's Market this weekend and enjoy yourself a little sweet-treat!
