After making the Brownie Pudding on Saturday from Barefoot Contessa Back to Basics, I perused through the book a little further. I came across this yummy sounding salad. I had almost all the ingredients already and it looked interesting. I never really though I'd post alot of recipes here, but this week I just can't resist. Well, I'm not actually posting the recipes, but you know what I mean. Back to the salad.
This is one of those recipes that inhibits good conversation at the dinner table. Instead of remembering to take a picture of the beautiful salad first, I just dove in. During dinner about all that was said was, "this is SO good" or "this is amazing". What wouldn't be good about arugula, granny smith apples, bacon, craisins, toasted walnuts and blue cheese? Don't even think about putting a bottled dressing on it. The dressing is SO GREAT!
This is the result. Practically licked clean. Nope, no left overs at all. Served with crusty bread. It was perfect.
I forgot to add that I made a marvelous dessert to top it all off. I cut a fresh peach in half, sprinkled with brown sugar. Warmed it in a 350 degree oven till the sugar melted and served with vanilla ice cream. I got the idea somewhere recently. If it was you, I'll be happy to give you credit. Just let me know.
