Duck - I had it once and was surprisingly good. I just can't bring myself to eat it again - ducks are cute :)

Love quinoa and use it often when I cook.

Yes, the yucca plant. The root is used in some south american foods. It is good.

Chorizo - Yum

Capers are a flower bud that is pickled in a brine or salt. I love them in salads and in some italian sauces. They add a nice tang for me.

Capers - Yuck. Only had once and it years ago - showed up on my order from the Olive Garden.

Chorizo ? I have always stayed away from it because I know where the meat came from on the pig!!! But my husband made me eat it yesterday with eggs - OMG it was deliciious. But I understand it is very high in fat.

Blue Sky has a chicken pasta salad and is loaded with feta. I love that salad!!

Eggplant ?
I want to love it but sometimes it is gross. Really depends on how it is cooked.

Sounds yummy but never tried.

I actually had to google Tabbouleh because I did not recognize the name. Although I have not had it, it appears to me and would definitely try it.

Mango - I love to buy frozen mango and have it as a snack.

Hummus - Yum!! Store bought or homemade always good!!

Salmon - I used to hate fish but when I got on my health kick I decided I need to revisit the idea. I now enjoy tilipia and salmon. I usually order grilled salmon at restaurants because I haven't quite figured out how to make it taste as good at home. I made a salmon sandwich last night to pack for work today. It is salmon from an envelope. I found a recipe that looked really good - I hope I enjoy it or I will be tempted by the vending machine!

Hummus is another good dip. When my nephew was with me he LOVED hummus as a dip with everything (he also loved ranch, LOL). He said he "hated beans" and would tell people he was allergic to them (he ate them before he came to live with me but you know how kids minds work, they get it in their head and you can't convince them otherwise)....I just never told him it was made from garbanzo beans/chickpeas!

Sabra has various flavors of hummus too.

Thanks for the recipe I'm gonna have to give it a try cause my kids love when I make them veggie platters and I've been trying to find a healthier dip than ranch.

It is a roasted eggplant dip, usually eaten with pita but really good on raw veggies too.

Here's a typical recipe, there are variations but this is pretty typical.


Ingredients

1 eggplant
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup tahini
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
2 cloves garlic, minced
salt and pepper to taste
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet.
Place eggplant on baking sheet, and make holes in the skin with a fork. Roast it for 30 to 40 minutes, turning occasionally, or until soft. Remove from oven, and place into a large bowl of cold water. Remove from water, and peel skin off.
Place eggplant, lemon juice, tahini, sesame seeds, and garlic in an electric blender, and puree. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Transfer eggplant mixture to a medium size mixing bowl, and slowly mix in olive oil. Refrigerate for 3 hours before serving.
