We are having cracked crab and crackers this Sunday. Meat and starch needs vegetables. A salad is a good compliment.

I am making Cuban Picadillo for dinner on Sunday, but I had difficulty finding any Cuban green vegetable side dishes. I needed to make more of my orange sugar, which always leaves me with two or three navel oranges to use up after I have removed all of the zest. I decided that an orange wedge and baby lettuce salad would do the trick. To make the vinaigrette “Cuban” I used lime juice and a bit of culantro Recaíto sauce.
I decided that I wanted a cool salad to go with my lasagna. Jan really likes carrot salad. Since she had forbidden me to be too creative with the lasagna I decided that would express myself on this dish.
I decided that I needed some greens to go with my salmon and soup that I am serving to my sister. A spinach salad seemed like a good idea, but plain leaves and dressing did not seem like enough. I have been doing a lot of cooking lately and I have several “left over ingredients” on hand.
