"GREENS make the best salad to serve with this meal because the flavors are so compatible with the main course. We often use collards here in the South, but spinach or beet greens are good substitutes."
"This rich and creamy soup tastes like it's made by a professional chef," says Patricia Bradley Rohnert Park, California. While Patricia often uses drained canned spinach in the recipe, frozen spinach works well, too.
I had this delicious sandwich in a local cafe and added my own twist to spruce it up. It would be lovely for a shower, a picnic or special occasion. I often use mini croissants for pretty smaller-sized servings.
