  1. Angie, I saw this recipe and I wanted to make it too. Is the Marie Rose sauce good ?

  2. @Swee San: Yes, the sauce was really good, especially with some hot sauce.

  3. This looks so healthy and refreshing, who would resist such a plate...?

  4. This makes me feel like spring is actually coming. The picture. The food. Love it!

  5. Angie...nice sauce for the salad. I have never tried this before ...mayo and brandy and the name Marie Rose sounds nice too. Have KIV this :)

  6. Beautiful picture. I'm a big fan of serving sauce in a little bowl on the side. Not only does it make the meal more interactive, but there is something great about getting choose how much sauce to use. Personally, I like a good smear with every mouthful.

  9. So the alcohol in the brandy is not cooked out in the sauce?
