Dirty Dancing

MOVIE: Dirty Dancing (Don’t have it? Get it at Amazon or see more options)
RUNNING TIME: 1 hour, 40 minutes
STARRING: Jennifer Grey, Patrick Swayze, Jerry Orbach

If you have someone you want to be your, be your little baby — or perhaps they already are — treat them to dinner and a movie, Dirty Dancing-style. This tale of Frances “Baby” Houseman (Jennifer Grey) falling in love with dance instructor Johnny Castle (Patrick Swayze) at a summer camp in the Catskills never gets old.

Strawberry-watermelon chicken salad sure seems like something they’d serve to the ritzy guests at Kellerman’s, doesn’t it? Plus, one ingredient in particular pays tribute to an oft-quoted Baby line: “I carried a watermelon.”

Ever the bleeding heart Baby makes a point about American waste and indulgence by suggesting the resort send its leftover pot roast to Southeast Asia to feed starving children. In light of that, be grateful, most of all, but also be sure to clean your plate when you serve garlic herb-crusted roast beef for the main dish.
