Warm Lobster Salad

On Friday evening we tried a couple new dishes.  We made a simple appetizer that was was colourful, crunchy and delicious.

Just layer the following:

- Raw zucchini
- Hummus
- Shredded carrot
- Avocado

Top with sriracha if desired (recommended).

Raw zucchini is so good - who would have thought!?

We also enjoyed some hummus with homemade pita chips.

For the main course we made this and it turned out really well.  The vegetable mixture included garlic, onions, jalapenos, bacon, zucchini, herbs and corn.

We then seared lobster tails and wilted some tomatoes in with them.

Ohhhhh yeah ...

We used the leftover vegetable mixture in a frittata on Saturday morning.  

I had no idea how good corn and zucchini is with eggs - we'll definitely be making both the lobster salad and the frittata again.

On Saturday evening we went to Christopher's work BBQ. There was a huge selection of food, and I tried a little bit of everything.  The stuff on the plate isn't even half of it ...

How was your weekend?  Did you eat anything delicious?
Have you ever had raw zucchini?  If not try it!

I have eaten raw zucchini! This mexican place in Minneapolis serves it with their guac plate and it's so so good! All of your eats look good, as usual!

Wow, so much delicious food! I ate a lot of great stuff this weekend, but I'd say your eats put mine to shame. YUM!
