5 more ways to use Everything but the Bagel

Sometimes just a dash is all you need to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary.
Trader Joe's Everything but the Bagel Sesame Seasoning seems to have that magic touch.
A few months ago I posted 5 ways to use this amazing spice and now I'm back with 5 more.

You'll be amazed with the flavor when you put it on
sliced watermelon...

edamame...

grilled corn...

fried eggs...
(or scrambled, poached, hard boiled)

or mix it with cottage cheese or sour cream for an incredible dip...

Quick, easy and flavor beyond compare!

Chicken Salad Iceberg-ers

I have been on a quest to make the perfect chicken salad  
and I think I've finally done it.
The only thing that makes it better is to serve it on lettuce buns and call them, 
Icebergers!

This savory, fresh and crunchy creation,
 is so fun to eat between crisp, chilled lettuce.
