Salade Moosoise

It's hot here. It's so hot, that I've started to lose my appetite. I love to eat, so I hate losing my appetite. Fortunately, the hardworking staff at Michael's Meanderings are culinary geniuses and have developed a new recipe that is both filling, healthy, and cooly refreshing.

The recipe is based on a salade nicoise, but with a northern twist.  Here's the recipe for the newest and greatest salad sensation to hit the blogosphere, the Salade Moosoise.

Dressing (for two)
6   Pickled sweet onions (quartered)
1/4 cup Lemon juice
3/4 cup Olive oil
1 tsp Thyme (dried)
1 tsp Oregano (dried)
6 Fresh basil leaves
1 tbsp Dijon mustard (prepared)
Salt and pepper

The Salad (for one)
3 Pickled spicy green beans (cut into halves)
1 Celery stalk (small, sliced length-wise)
1/2 Carrot (small, shaved with potato peeler)
2 Pickled beet slices (large, sliced length-wise)
1 Egg (hard-boiled, sliced or quartered)
1/2 can Tuna
1 Moose sausage (cooked, then cooled, and sliced)
1 Bowl full of garden-fresh lettuce (butter-crunch or romaine)

Put lettuce into large bowl or onto place.  Place other ingredients on top, keeping ingredients in little groups.  Drizzle dressing on top of the vegetables and tuna.  Sprinkle salt and pepper on the egg and tuna, to taste.

Michael, I wanted to give you an update on the Saskatoon berries in Crestview (I've now determine that they are Saskatoons). By the time my neighbour got back from holidays and checked on them, they were all dried up on the bushes. I guess it's been just too hot and dry. Luckily she had just come from visiting her parents, and she had brought some berries from there. But sadly, the bushes in Crestview aren't going to yeild anything this year. Sorry about that...I tried several times to find them while she was gone but no luck.
