zydeco salad


recipe courtesy of b&c seafood, vacherie, la adapted from alton brown's cookbook "feasting on asphalt". take this to your next covered-dish dinner or picnic. finding the italian olive salad-the chopped olive spread that's an essential component of a muffaletta sandwich-is the trick. if you can't find it at the megamart do a search on 'zaar, there are many authentic recipes. if you have minor's kalamata olive base, be sure to use it in the olive spread. three bean salad: b&c seafood uses "read" brand of three-bean salad. if you can't find it at your grocery store try www.senecafoods.com. the olive salad and canned beans marry into the lettuce and tomatoes. zydeco comes from "les haricorts cont pas sales", which means "the beans aren't salty", an expression for hard times when there wasn't enough salt meat to season the beans. so this salad, with it's three different beans, is actually zydeco and the musical genre is named after it. food is facinating stuff. edited 5-18-09 i just made another batch of this, found a huge jar of the bean salad at costco. this is so good, i could live on this salad. you really need to try this one. i made my olive salad from scratch this time with both kalamata and green olives, and will continue to go this route.
