THE ALCREST GASTROPUB SIGNATURE HONEY-LIME VINAIGRETTE
[From Canadian Author & Real Chef, Lorne Oliver]
This is the vinaigrette Spencer learned when he was in culinary school and he fell in love with it. He has kept it with him and adopted it as the signature vinaigrette for the restaurant. It’s simple, easy, and tasty.
3 limes, zested and juiced
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
Salt and pepper
- Put the lime juice and zest, honey, and mustard into a large bowl. Place the bowl onto a towel so that it won’t move. Using a whisk, slowly whisk in some oil. Just a little at first, maybe a tablespoon or two. As the oil and lime juice emulsifies you can add oil a little more quickly as you whisk it in. Oil should be almost 3 times the amount of lime juice
- Season with the salt and pepper. Taste and add more honey if needed.
This is a basic vinaigrette. You can use the same recipe, but switch up the acid and the flavoring to make different tastes.
[From USA Today Bestselling author, Donna Fasano…who loves to bake and makes sure at least one character does too!]
1 (8 ounce) container whipped topping
2 cups shredded coconut

1 (8 ounce) can pineapple tidbits, drained
1 (11 ounce) can mandarin orange slices, drained
2 cups mini marshmallows
1 (10 ounce) jar maraschino cherries, drained and halved
- In a large bowl, gently mix together all ingredients until well-combined. Stir gently; orange slices are delicate. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving. Can be made a day ahead.
