I wouldn't blame you or be at all surprised if you didn't.
After I finished chef training, life changed in CRAZY ways and I got caught up in all of it for a long time.
Then...something exciting happened....I found out I'm *going to be published!*
Yes, you heard it right - some of my recipes are going to be published!! That's all I can say for right now, but I'll give you details later when I can ;-)
Because of this publishing thing, I have been using my recipe-writing energies on that, rather than on blogging.
But then, upon the urging and suggestion of a close (and critical) friend ;-) , I realized I should still keep blogging, and include more health information, with snippets of recipes here and there!
Sooo, for your taste-bud pleasure, today I have come up with a recipe for you! YAYYY!!! I think it's the perfect solution for getting enough greens, but still not feeling like you are eating summer foods. It's a sufficiently Fall-ish salad! Enjoy :-)
Leafy Cranberry Steak Salad
1 large leaf kale, shredded into bite-sized pieces
1 glug olive oil
1 large handful fresh spinach
1/2 pound beef tips or other steak, cooked
1/2 cup raw walnuts
1/2 onion, sliced, carmelized in olive oil and a pinch of salt
handful fresh cranberries
1/4 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon apple cider or red wine vinegar
1 splash balsamic vinegar
salt, onion powder, and pepper to taste
- In a large bowl, combine kale, olive oil, and dash of salt. Using your hands, "massage" olive oil into kale for about 30 seconds, until kale is tender.
- Place kale and spinach on large plate. Add beef and caramelized onions, and scatter walnuts and cranberries on top.
- In a small bowl or glass, combine olive oil, vinegar, balsamic vinegar, and spices. Whisk well.
- Drizzle over salad and enjoy!
