"I use this marinade for fresh tuna (or chicken breast) that I grill and chill for the Salad Nicoise; I just can''t bring myself to use CANNED tuna."

"This recipe is impressive enough for your nicest lunch.Variations: I use fresh tuna, and marinade it for 2 hours in the marinade from the Mediterranean Grilled Tuna Sandwich recipe, then broil or grill the tuna steak. One 8-oz steak is usually enough for four people. Or I use the same marinade on a comparably sized chicken breast. Then I double the marinade above, boil four medium red potatoes, slice them, and put them in enough marinade to cover in a ziplock bag in the refrigerator, letting them marinade for at least four hours. I will arrange this salad on a large platter and let everyone serve him or herself; that way, the vegetarians can leave the tuna for the rest of us!"

"Absolutely outstanding; everyone at the party wanted the recipe. They were shocked to find out that it included German chocolate cake MIX and CANNED frosting and wasn''t made from scratch."

"Tastes great, and has "eye appeal." It can even be prepared several hours before serving, and then refrigerated (sprinkle with crushed croutons right before baking). When you come in the door, you can pop it in the oven to bake while you''re changing and going through the mail. (I microwave the spinach before assembling the dish.) One of our favorites."

Slow-Cooker Mediterranean Pot Roast
full spoonfull spoonfull spoonfull spoonfull spoon

"This is ONE pot roast my (formerly) pot-roast-hating husband will eat! It''s meltingly tender. Suggestions:1. If using kalamata olives, omit the additional salt to prevent the broth from becoming overly salty. Add salt to taste after cooking, if necessary.2. Approximately 10 fresh pearl onions may be substituted for the frozen ones.3. After browning the pot roast, use the broth to briefly deglaze the pan before adding the broth to the crock pot.I serve it with oven-browned red potato wedges which I''ve tossed with olive oil, salt, pepper, and rosemary, then bake for 30 minutes at 375 degrees, turning every 15 minutes to prevent sticking."

Very showy on a brunch buffet! Use the thinnest asparagus spears you can find, and substitute Havarti DILL cheese for the regular Havarti for additional dill flavor. Don''t scrimp on the salmon; use the best quality you can get.
