Vintage Scarlet Crustaceans and Salad For Foodie Friday

I'm joining Michael Lee and all the other Foodie Friday fans for another food fest
over at Designs By Gollum today.  Bring an appetite and plan on a shopping trip to
make some of the great recipes that will be shared.

This vintage Wilendur "Lobster" tablecloth is highly sought after.  Mine was a recent
gift from the "Dish/Tablecloth Fairy" from the Homer Laughlin China collectors
forum.  Opened my mailbox and it was filled with these beautiful scarlet crustaceans!

White and Turquoise Post 86 Fiesta with acrylic chargers. Flatware and glassware from
Home Goods.  Large Turquoise bowl is a vintage "Betty Bowl" from Betty Crocker, candle
holders are vintage Metlox.  Also shown are some vintage Turquoise Harlequin pieces and
a vintage Rhythm gravy boat.

And to do justice to this beauty, we're having an easy peasy and delicious lobster salad.

Lobster Salad

1 1/4 pound freshly cooked lobster (tear into chunks)
1/2 C good mayonnaise (Best Foods or homemade)
1 t grated orange rind
1 T fresh orange juice
2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
1 small can mandarin oranges
1/2 C finely diced Jicama
 1 T or more large capers
1 T chopped fresh dill
freshly ground black pepper

4 C mixed fresh salad greens

Combine ingredients except salad greens, chill for about an hour,
top lettuce greens with seafood mix.
Serves 2 as a nice lunch or 4 for a starter salad

  6. Candy....Fantastic...Colors are great and your candle holders are to die for. But what I really want is that TABLECLOTH...HAND IT OVER.


  7. The cool blue is the perfect counterpoint to the hot crustaceans! Thanks for the recipe.

  8. Your table is so colorful and just adorable!
    I've only eaten lobster a couple times..we live in West Texas where seafoods aren't as good as other places. I LOVE that tablecloth!!

  9. Wow! love everything you have here especially the red dishes and turquoise! lobster salad is yummy!

  10. I'm so pleased that you enjoyed this big burst of color! Turquoise is a big color in fashion and decor again.....all the colors eventually come back around the color wheel and into fashion again!
