Crispy Corn Beef and Cabbage Wedge Salad

As someone with the last name Murphy, 
Corned Beef and Cabbage is mandatory on St. Patrick's Day.
This year we are living on the "wedge" this March 17th...

As the luck of the Irish would have it, 
this recipe is quick, easy and delicious.
Grilled wedges...

and an amazing dressing...

that is dripped and drizzled...

then topped with crispy, savory corned beef.

Forget the pot of gold, 
I want this at the end of the rainbow!

Crispy Corn Beef & Cabbage Wedge Salad 
with Sweet Mustard Dressing

for the dressing
whisk together:
2 Tablespoons Sweet Mustard (I love Just For All)
2 Tablespoons White Wine Vinegar
4 Tablespoons Olive Oil

Cut head of green cabbage into 6 wedges, leaving the core intact.  Brush the sides of each wedge with olive oil and grill (either on outdoor grill or stove top grill pan) for about 5 minutes on each side.  Then cute about 10 slices of deli corned beef into strips and fry until crisp in a pan.

Drizzle wedges with dressing and top with warm crispy corned beef

Spicy Jalapeño Lime Burrata with homemade chips

Homemade tortilla chips, salsa and guacamole will always be a staple around here,
 but our favorite burrata cheese recently took a trip south of the border 
for a new Mexican appetizer!

Creamy, soft burrata is perfecto with lime juice and zest then
soaks up just touch of spice from thinly sliced jalapeños...

and the cheese gets even more decadent 
as you scoop it up with warm salted chips...

I have a feeling that Taco Tuesday will never be the same!

Spicy Jalapeño Lime Burrata

1 large ball of burrata
5-6 very thin slices of fresh jalapeño
juice of half a lime
drizzle of olive oil
lime zest for topping
dash of salt

Place burrata in a shallow bowl or dish.  Squeeze lime on top of cheese, drizzle with olive oil then top with jalapeño slices, lime zest and salt.  Serve with freshly fried tortilla chips. (I just fry corn tortillas that I cut into triangles in very hot vegetable oil until golden, drain on paper towel and lightly salt).

Ranch Chex Mix

Yee Haw!
I decided to take one of our favorite snacks out to the ranch.
Ranch dressing is fabulous with chicken wings, salads, pizza, really anything, 
why not Chex Mix??

Ranch, garlic salt and dill weed give crispy Chex cereal quite a kick...

You will definitely be saying, 
Give me a home where the Ranch Chex Mix roams!

Ranch Chex Mix

6 cup Rice Chex Cereal
4 Tablespoons butter
1 packet Hidden Valley Ranch powdered salad dressing
1 tablespoon Garlic Salt
2 tablespoons Dill Weed

Preheat oven to 225 degrees. Place cereal in a large mixing bowl.  Melt butter and pour over cereal, mixing gently to coat.  Sprinkle seasonings over the buttered cereal and mix to combine.  Spread on a parchment lined baking sheet.  Bake one hour stirring about every 20 minutes.
