I missed posting Page 14 of your recipe book last Saturday. I was busy at Market all day and then we went to a lovely dinner honoring Mark Dunn and his 40 year anniversary with Moda, a very popular fabric company.
We were honored to sit at one of the head tables for dinner and during Mark’s appreciation presentation.
It was our pleasure to congratulate Mark Dunn on a company loved by all quilters. The philosophy of Howard Marcus Dunn, the founder and owner of United Notions and Moda Fabrics is “Find your passion and enjoy what you do.”
Being able to be with family and friends and share a meal is a passion of mine. It takes a little planning and it’s rare when we can get all 14 of our family together.
Page 14 recipe came from another pot luck Christmas party at our house in Victoria, Texas. Jill Friedel brought it and I immediately got the recipe. I use it often to take to pot luck dinners. It’s easy to double so it can be served to a larger group. However, keep in mind, it is not a quick recipe.
Mandarin Berry Salad
6 cups torn mixed salad greens
1 cup fresh strawberries hulled and quartered
½ cup diced green onions
½ cup canned rice noodles
¼ cup chopped pecans
1 eleven oz. can mandarin orange sections, drained
¼ cup flaked coconut
2 tsp. honey
2 tsp. salad oil
2 tsp. balsamic vinegar
½ tsp. ground ginger
½ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. pepper
2 oz. semi-soft goat cheese, crumbled
In a food processor bowl or blender container combine ½ cup of the oranges, coconut, honey, oil, vinegar, ginger, salt and pepper. Cover; process or blend until combined.
In a large bowl combine greens, strawberries, onions, noodles, remaining oranges, cheese, and pecans. Pour dressing over salad; toss to coat. Serves 4-6 people. Enjoy!
It’s time to go home and create in my studio again. Hope you have a great day. Love and blessings to you all, Judy
