    Except I don't eat baby animals, so I usually use beef I put in the slow cooker for other reasons and use that as the meat in the salad

    So:

    Beef (usually slow cooked with something salty and tangy)
    Whole Beets
    Rocket (I forget what you call Rocket leaves over there)
    Feta Cheese
    Balsamic Vinegar
    I like cashews instead of walnuts



    I could have sworn originally this was a Nigella Lawson recipe like ten years ago, but I couldn't find her version online

      one of those weird coincidences happened. i read this thread and thought "oh i didn't know anywhere had a different name for rocket"
      then an hour later i was on the phone to a friend and he randomly mentioned rocket by its American name and said "that's what they call rocket in America"

          You are correct

          But it's a dumb name, calling it Rocket is way cooler

            if someone told me they were eating rocket, i would assume they couldn't pass a drug test for a few days.

            yet somehow, arugula is way worse.

              What? No way. Arugula sounds like some exotic woman, a spy from eastern Europe

              "Dimitri, bring me Arugula"
              "Yes, Vladimir "

                yeah, sounds like something a guy named rocket would say.

                  ok, now that i think about it, rocket actually sounds more like the slow guy who rides his bike around town all day and the jr high kids like to hang out with him, but only to make fun of him.

                Rocket is the badass raccoon from Guardians of the Galaxy.

                Interestingly when I started typing "Guardians" my phone wanted to auto fill it to "Guadalcanal"

                    Arugula is the Spanish word for the rocket leaves.

                      I have lots of favorites—but here is one.

                      Red Beans & Rice

                      Ingredients:

                      1 pound dry kidney beans
                      1/4 cup olive oil
                      1 large onion, chopped
                      1 green bell pepper, chopped
                      2 tablespoons minced garlic
                      2 stalks celery, chopped
                      4 cups chicken broth
                      2 cups water
                      2 bay leaves
                      1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
                      1 teaspoon dried thyme
                      1/4 teaspoon dried sage
                      1 tablespoon dried parsley
                      1 1/2 tsp. salt
                      1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning (I use "Slap Ya Mama")
                      1 pound Andouille sausage, sliced
                      4 cups water
                      2 cups long grain white rice

                      Directions:

                      Rinse beans, and then soak in a large pot of water overnight.

                      In a skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Cook onion, bell pepper, garlic, and celery in olive oil for 3 to 4 minutes.

                      Rinse beans, and transfer to a large pot with the chicken broth and water. Stir cooked vegetables into beans. Season with bay leaves, cayenne pepper, thyme, sage, parsley, salt and Cajun seasoning. Bring to a boil, and then reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer for 2 1/2 hours.

                      Stir sausage into beans, and continue to simmer for 30 minutes.
                      Meanwhile, prepare the rice*. In a saucepan, bring water and rice to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes. Serve beans over steamed white rice.

                      *I usually jazz up the rice somehow, peppers and chicken broth or whatnot.

                        Omg, TD! I was just looking through my Hip bookmarks and this recipe was one of my very first bookmarks! Ha! I never did get to making this though. :P
