The nice thing about this recipe is that the dish doesn't taste burnt even though you can get a nice blackened look. The sugar and the thyme caramelize and give it a wonderful flavor. All my friends love it.
Brown sugar gives the mayonnaise dressing a sweet richness, and curry and garlic powder give it a bit of nip. Once the veggies and eggs are sliced, chopped and shredded, you layer the salad, finishing with the dressing on the top. Sprinkle with bacon bits and Parmesan cheese.
A hearty Low Country stew is transformed into a Southern summer salad. Long grain and wild rice, black-eyed peas, peppers, and fresh crabmeat are tossed in a simple lemon, olive oil, and parsley dressing.
