Seems I’m doing more blogging. That’s a good sign! Means I’m making more time to do what I love…cook.
Okay, so maybe salads are not really cooking per say, but man, when you put the right things together it can be magic.
For example, today I realized we had everything to make a perfect cobb salad; fresh arugula from the garden, left over balsamic roasted chicken, a hard boiled egg, an avocado, gorgonzola crumbles, some tomatoes, scallion, red onion, and even bacon. So, I made a little decomposed salad plate…
And whipped up a quick Creamy Salad Dressing I found on Hungry Cravings blog…
Here is the recipe I stole:
Quick Creamy Salad Dressing
½ cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 to 2 cloves garlic, grated
2 ½ teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
3 tablespoons water
Freshly ground black pepper
Blend together the mayonnaise, mustard, garlic, lemon juice, and water in a small bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper
This was a really easy and delicious dressing that would be great with chives, basil or even parmesan..
Always wondered where Cobb salad came from? Apparently it was created at the Brown Derby Restaurant in Hollywood by Chef Robert H. Cobb. Now you know.
Tonight after work I hope to check out a new bar in Ballard called Noble Fir with Bill. Good way to end a busy week.
Hope everyone is having a good week. Make sure to tune in for the World Cup!! How awful was that ref today?? My bets are on the Netherlands or Mexico now…
