For the September 3 Mill City Cooks Demo, Jenny prepared a Broccoli Slaw with Citris Dressing and an Apricot Chicken Salad (for which she substituted fresh pears from Ames Farm).
The Broccoli Slaw starts with a base of shredded broccoli and carrots. The Citris Dressing includes peanut butter, orange juice, cider vinegar, spices and honey.
With no apricots available at the Market, Jenny substituted pears in the Apricot Chicken Salad. She also substituted the stems of rainbow chard for celery.
Walnuts were lightly toasted to enhance their flavor. As with all Jenny's versatile recipes, other toasted nuts - like almonds or pecans - can be substituted.
Jenny displayed the finished products on a dish from art vendor Adam Gruetzmacher.
Recipes from the Mill City Cooks demos are available online.
