I make a homemade poppy seed dressing with mayo, sour cream, honey, marashino cherry juice, fresh garlic & a hint of horseradish & cayene pepper & of course poppy seed. I have also made berry vinaigerettes. Balsamic is'nt a real popular one here.

We don't have an outside sighn or seperate entrance. The cafe is mostly limited to members. Although our catering does real well.
My question is does anyone have any unique sanwich ideas or entree special ideas. Your imput would be most appreciated.
I realize that my sandwich is not low-fat but it is a nice sandwich and people love it. I buy a loaf of unsliced bakery bread (anykind) But not too rounded. I slice lengthwise into three sections. I butter bread before adding a layer of chicken salad, a layer of egg salad, and a layer of ham salad. I put layers together and frost entire loaf with softened cream cheese and a dash of milk for spreading consistency. I garnish with fresh parsley. And, chill. The slices are pretty and tasty. It actually looks like a cake. (An attention drawing sandwich for sure) I used to make it and put in my husband's lunch. The guys would tease him and say I made him a wedding cake for lunch. He didn't mind the teasing. He loved it!

what about cheese blintzes....they can be made in advance and put in the fridge, then either fried or baked and served with sour cream and/or some fruit.

Sounds good. I have done something similiar but cut into short, wide strips for finger sandwich's on hors de veours parties. Put a frilled toothpick through them with a plum tomato or queen green olive.

What are blintzes? We don't have a deep fryer (The 1st kitchen I've ever worked in 30 years without one, sometimes kind of a nice change.) But we do have a couple of good ovens.

Look up Blintzes in a Jewish Cookbood. You do not need a deep fryer for them.
They are made with a thin crepe-like cover. They have cottage cheese put in them, rolled up and then fried or baked. Very deelish!!!

CHEESE BLINTZES
Read more about it at http://www.cooks.com/rec/view/0,2318...238207,00.html
Content Copyright 2011 Cooks.com - All rights reserved.

BATTER:

2 eggs
1 cup milk or water (milk makes a more tender shell)
1/8 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup sifted flour



Beat eggs well and add salt. Add flour all at once. Add milk gradually and beat to a smooth batter. This will make a very thin batter.

CHEESE FILLING FOR BLINTZES:


1 pound dry cottage cheese or Farmers Cheese
1 teaspoon sugar (optional)
1 egg yolk
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla (optional)
1/8 teaspoon salt
8 oz. pkg. cream cheese


Equal parts of Cottage Cheese and Cream Cheese may be used, if desired, but we prefer Farmers Cheese when it is available.
Melt butter in a skillet. Pour in 2 tablespoons of batter, swirling around to make a circle.
Fry until lightly brown on bottom and turn out on waxed or parchment paper, browned side up. Fill pancakes with a tablespoon of cheese filling; fold over from both sides and then into envelope shape.
Just before serving, fry in a little butter in a hot skillet until a golden brown on all sides.
Serve hot with sour cream or applesauce, or cinnamon and sugar, or fruit preserves. Makes 12 blintzes. Blintzes freeze well.

Cranberry Salsa is also very nice. You basically make cranberry sauce (I cut the sugar) but you add chopped onion, hot peppers, cumin, corriander, and lime juice (if you wish). Very nice on turkey or chicken sandwiches.
