I wanted something quick and easy for the lunch menu- and nothing TOO filling as we needed to leave plenty of room for dessert. Here's what we had:
BBQ Chicken Teriyaki Burgers (chicken breasts marinated in teriyaki sauce topped with shaved ham, swiss cheese and a grilled pineapple ring on a hamburger bun)
Blue and White Tortilla Chips and Salsa
Green Salad with Smurfy Radish Mushrooms
The radishes were so much easier than I anticipated! I just followed THIS tutorial and it really did work! Here are the photos to prove it! First, cut partially into the radish all the way around- not all the way through though... Then, carefully, from the bottom, cut in up to the first incision, squaring off the "stem". I realize that doesn't make much sense- hopefully the photo explains it a little better! Then, shave the corners off to round out the stem... Using the tip of your knife, cut little round spots off the top in whatever pattern you want... I kept them in some water in the refrigerator until they were needed... Finally, when you're ready, toss over your salad and enjoy how happy they make a plain bagged salad look!I think this is definitely something that will be repeated. I mean, how cute would this be at a Fourth of July picnic or any outside gathering?
