How to Make Dinner in a Basket by Donna Godfrey

Step-by-Step

  1. Clean green beans letting them whole and cook them until they are tender
    with maybe a bit of crisp..
    refrigerate

    Meanwhile cut each potato in half. In skillet over medium heat, in your oil,
    cook cut side down, with the rosemary and salt until golden on the bottom.
    Reduce heat to low, cover and cook until they a fork tender. Cover and
    refrigerate.....Wipe skillet clean

    Cut the cod in 6 pieces. Place flour on waxed paper and coat the cod(I use
    more flour and I always add pepper and garlic too)(I have used other types
    of fish) Cook the fish in the skillet until brown. (I add more olive oil
    first) Refrigerate.

    Cook the chicken ....what I do here is often grill for the family and keep
    one out...You can do these in the broiler too.

    Prepare Mustard-Maple dressing

    Cut the chicken breast in half and than in 3 pieces(each half) Cut honeydew
    and cantaloupe and thin wedges(with peel off)
    Cut cheese into 8 pieces

    Select a large shallow basket (I like to use one with a handle) and cover
    the inside with foil. Line the basket with the lettuces...than comes the
    fun!

    Get out all the things you have cooked and arrange them in a pretty fashion
    on top...I usually start with the salami in the center. I take each piece
    and make it look like a flower......just pick up the slice and fold it in
    half and than half again and poke these in the lettuce.
    Add the rest of the fruit and meat and vegetables around that in a
    pretty way.Serve the dressing aside from the salad.
    This serves 4-6

    Maple Dijon Salad Dressing

    1 Tablespoon dijon mustard
    1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
    1/2 cup maple syrup
    salt and pepper to taste
    1 cup olive oil
    Blend first four ingredients with a wire whisk or food processor. Add oil
    slowly to emulsify. Adjust to taste.

    I add 2 tablespoons soy sauce and cracked pepper.....
    and have used this recipe too but double it.

    Raspberry Vinaigrette

    2 ts Raspberry vinegar
    1/2 c Orange juice
    1/4 ts Salt
    1/4 ts Freshly ground pepper

    Combine all ingredients in a small jar with a tight fitting lid; shake
    well.
    I have used carrots sliced very thin...in the salad part to add color. I
    have replaced the strawberries with cherry tomatoes....the red adds color
    and makes it pretty.Several kinds of cheese are good too..........
