As an appetizer or as a meal in itself, salads always make a wonderful meal or a meal wonderful. This week I had been thinking of creating a salad using Rhodes wonderful products, and a crispy Salad Bowl was the obvious solution. Some like Taco Salads, others prefer the Cesar Salad. I prefer meatless salads so I will leave the salad up to your taste but I will share the salad I chose for my crispy Rhodes Salad Bowl. You should also know that this bowl is large and will be the right size to share as an appetizer or as a meal.
Take your 4 Rhodes Dinner Rolls that have been defrosted but are still cold, and kneed them together.
Using a little bit of flour, roll out your dough into a large circle.
Take a bowl (that won’t melt in oil), and place it upside-down on the counter. Place the dough on the bowl and using your hands, mold the dough on the bowl so that it retains the shape and the dough reaches the counter on all sides.
Now turn the bowl over with the dough on it and curve the edges of the dough onto the edges of your bowl so that the dough doesn’t fall off of the bowl. You don’t want to lose your shape.
In a deep pan, boil your oil. I recommend vegetable oil for this. Make sure there is sufficient oil to cover most of your bowl. Place your bowl in the hot oil to cook.
Once your dough is browned to a nice dark brown, and so retaining it’s shape, carefully and using a fork, roll the dough off of the edges of the bowl.
Now you can carefully remove the bowl from inside of your dough. Do so carefully using an oven mitt as it will be very hot.
Now turn your dough over to make sure you get the edges crisped.
Once your edges are crisped, turn the bowl over and let the inside of the bowl brown.
Now take the bowl out and place upside down on some towels. You want to let the oil drain off and for the bowl to cool enough to eat.
Now you can place all of your ingredients into the bowl. This is what my salad looked like.
My mom has been out visiting and we shared this salad as an appetizer. She loved it….. especially the bowl. I reminded her that she had to eat some of the salad too.
