Baby Greens:

This salad is about bold flavors.  Here’s my selection of greens.  You may make your own. But keep in mind to choose greens that are naturally  spiced and flavored.

Filet Mignon:

Use your favorite way to cook  your steak.  Don’t add any other condiment other than salt and pepper.   Allow the meat to rest.  Cut the steak into thin slices. Keep the steak juice for the dressing.

Ingredients for the dressing:

2 cloves of garlic: grated and lightly fried.

1 tbsp. of original stone ground mustard

1 tbsp. of honey

1/4 cup of a very good balsamic vinegar

1/4 cup of a very good extra virgin olive oil

1/4 cup of a very good red wine vinegar

1/4 tsp. of dried oregano

1/4 tsp. of dried parsley

1/4 tsp. of dried cilantro

1/4 tsp. of pepper corn blend

1/4 tsp. of salt

Steak juice

Salad dressing

Directions:

Putting the salad together: Select the amount of every ingredient according with the taste of the person eating the salad. There’s no right or wrong here.   What you want to keep in mind is that soggy salad doesn’t taste as good as fresh ones.  So fix the plates as you are ready to consume the salad.

1) Add all the greens, walnuts, blue-cheese, apple and dressing to a bowl.  Stir the ingredients together.  Place the dressed ingredients on to a plate.

2) Add the  roasted peppers, onions and steak on top of the dressed ingredients and your salad is ready.

Serving suggestions:

1) Serve with cold beer and french bread.

Enjoy!
