Alton Brown’s Turkey Salad

Instead of sage, I use dried tarragon and parsley–very good. Also, make your own mayonnaise with the stick blender. In a wide mouth mason jar, combine 1 egg yolk, 1 tsp. lemon juice, 1/4 tsp. salt, 1/2 tsp. dijon mustard, 3/4 cup sunflower oil (or combination of oils–whatever you like). Blitz!

Thyme And Space

You are not going to believe how something this simple can taste so good.  It’s pretty, too!  The recipe is from Alton Brown, “Good Eats: The Early Years” (Stewart, Tabori & Chang) as reprinted here.
