Foodie with Family: Spring and camo casts


Serve immediately.

This addictive tartar sauce is much more flavor-packed than most alternatives. It's fantastic on fish, of course, but it's also great on french fries and hamburgers. Once you've tried it you'll plan entire meals around it.

Tart-er Sauce

1 c. Greek yogurt

1/4 c. mayonnaise

1/4 c. minced green onion

2 T. minced cabbage

1 T. minced green pepper

1 T. lemon juice

2 t. dill pickle relish

1/2 t. dried dill weed

1/4 t. celery seed

Stir all ingredients together in a bowl, cover tightly and refrigerate for at least an hour before serving.

The beloved cool, minty milkshakes that make their appearance in March are a sure sign of spring. But why go out when you can make one at home in five minutes? Celebrate spring at home in your pajamas! If you're feeling a little wild, add a couple tablespoons of chocolate syrup for a Grasshopper Milkshake.

Shamrock-Clone Shakes

1 c. vanilla ice cream, slightly softened at room temperature

1/3 c. milk

3 T. half and half

1/8 t. peppermint extract

4-5 drops green food coloring, optional

Put all ingredients in a blender and blend on high until smooth. Serve immediately.
