Red Wine Vinaigrette

1/2 cup red wine vinegar
3 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 1/2 tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 cup olive oil

Blend well with whisk or blender then drizzle over salad.

A good rule of thumb when making vinaigrettes is to use a 1 to 3 ration of vinegar to oil.

For making a raspberry balsamic vinaigrette simply replace red wine vinegar with balsamic and add a 1/4 -1/2 pint of fresh purred raspberries, plus sugar depending on tartness of raspberries and taste.

Shoujo-Sense SUM: Haru and Aki are the masters of the branch store—an old-looking and very unusual shop. It sells only one thing: a special kind of incense that, when burned, allows the user to see and speak with the spirit of the dead person that appears in the smoke. Every customer has a different reason for calling up the dead, and how they use this unusual opportunity is up to them...

imitation crab salad

We made this in cooking class and this unexpectedly delishioso! We tripled the recipe. I remember slicing 9 green onions. We had the imitation crab salad without the salad greens. And didn't used the lemon wedges. We simply added broke the crabmeat into pieces and mixed everything together.

1 (8 ounce) package imitation crabmeat
2 green onions, sliced
1/4 cup celery, diced small.
1/2 tablespoon lemon juice, fresh
1/4 cup light mayonnaise
1/4 teaspoon dill weed
1 teaspoon horseradish, prepared
2 -3 cups salad greens (optional)
1 teaspoon chopped parsley
1 lemon, cut into wedges (optional)

Cut crab into bite-sized pieces. Combine the crab with the onions, celery, lemon juice, mayonnaise, dill weed and horseradish; mix well. Place the salad greens on 2 plates for large portions and 3 plates for small portions. Divide crab mixture among the plates; sprinkle with the parsley. Place lemon wedges on plate.
