Well, Goodbye may be a bit Strong!

Ok, so maybe not Goodbye!  I’ve had a lot of traffic to Bringing Back Dinner since saying goodbye and a few requests, so how about a new post?  I will try to post each week, but will feature one main recipe review.

We are trying to eat a little healthier around here and trying new things.  I think you will be surprised at the flavors of the great salad I have for you this week.  Even the guys will like it!

Steak, Pear, and Watercress Salad – Cooking Light

Steak Pear and watercress salad

Time: About 30 minutes

Ease: Simple

Review:  This was a pretty quick and easy meal to make and a great blend of flavors.  I had to make a few changes though.  Sometimes watercress is difficult to find here in Greensboro, NC and I had to switch it out for lettuce, but watercress has a nice peppery flavor which lends itself well to this salad, so use it if you can find it.  We also had trouble finding the right cut of meat and in the end used a London Broil. lastly, you may switch the Blue Cheese for Feta (we did).  Serve with a nice crusty bread and olive oil.  This dish could be a nice dinner on the deck or a date night dinner and goes from beer to wine very well!  Versatile!

Asparagus

Not a fan of asparagus?  Try buying the small bundles of thinner stalks and roasting them.  They are easy to make that way and quite yummy!  Roll in olive oil and bake at 425 degrees Fahrenheit about 10 minutes.  Make sure they are still a bit firm.

Next week I’ll tell you about an aaaammmaazing Roasted Carrots with Carrot Tip Gremolata recipe with mild curry! mm, mmm, mmm!

I’d love your feedback.  Have you tried anything from Bringing Back Dinner?  What did you think?  Have a recipe you’d like us to test?  If so send us the link at burbachulous@gmail.com and we may check it out.

Enjoy!
