I had this post all set up and ready to go. All it needed was a picture. When I copy photos over from my camera to my "food" folder I name them things relevant to the recipe, and I number them in case I have more than one. I named this photo "aspsalad1" for asparagus salad, #1.
Much to my surprise I was greeted by a message asking me to rename the photo, since one already existed with that name. I thought, hmm, maybe I misnamed the broccoli salad.
But no. Apparently I have made this before. With the radishes, too. Last August. Why didn't I remember this?
I went back and read my post about it. It turns out I didn't like the radishes and I undercooked the broccoli.
I think it's funny that I blocked it out like that. I haven't been cooking long, and I haven't cooked much in that short amount of time, but I made the same dish twice without even realizing.
Anyway, I used the asparagus salad recipe from 101 Cookbooks. I should not have bought broccoli and asparagus, because they are ALMOST in season here, but I was craving some vegetables.
I do not like radishes. Somehow THIS I remembered, so I skipped them. The dressing was the best part... pine nuts are delicious.
I ate this all by itself because I was too lazy to make a grain or pasta to go with it. (I also ate the entire thing in one sitting.) I think a handful or two of a small pasta shape would work well here. It would also be fun to experiment with some other vegetables.
Maybe next time I will remember that I already made this and already posted about it...
