Good oil flavor. I can vouch that we love our BBQ Pulled Pork. It was crisp and easily sliced. My husband picked it fine. I will definately make it again.

Loved this salad - it's great in a salad - and I incorporated fresh veggies (celery, red pepper, carrots) into the main dish. If I were to make it again, I would add a little more lemon juice, because the taste of lavender and lemon mingled well with the rest of the ingredients.

I used a little oil, I think that would have been better without it. In a Japanese style salad, I put corn and so there might have been some extra calories anyway. Regardless, this was a hearty salad and Pita would have been perfect with asparagus as well. I didn't have asparagus as I made this but I'm sure it would have added another layer of flavor. I always roast asparagus so this would have added another level of flavor as well. Overall, a very nice salad.

I made this and added a scant tablespoon of garlic powder, and in an attempt to mimic the flavors of the meat, I mixed chicken stock and heavy cream (actually, I put chicken stock and heavy cream in a food processor for a few minutes, until it was smooth and creamy). I'm sure it would be wonderful as written, but the pastas were a hit with the family, and we'll make this recipe again -- hopefully soon!
