Elation would be too mild a word to describe how I am feeling right now:-)
Thanks to everyone who has ever buzzed me, taken a look at my posts or was kind enough to leave a comment!
I was watching Forget Paris this morning and it made me wish I was sitting in a Paris cafe and enjoying a simple salad.
The salad I decided I would order would have to include crispy steamed asparagus, hard boiled eggs and tender red potatoes.
Since the making of most of the ingredients is simple - steam up some asparagus tips and one red potato, boil an egg and wash and dry some butter lettuce - I won't go into detail about that.
But I will give you the recipe for the mustard vinaigrette that I drizzled on top. This dressing made the salad. I even broke out a couple of pieces of the baguette I made yesterday just so I could sop up every last drop of the dressing.
I had been debating about making a salad nicoise but I decided against it - but I had already opened a can of tuna so I decided to make the dogs a snack.
|Tuna with Udo's oil and plain yogurt.|
I wrapped the tuna fish in butter lettuce and ta da! Doggie Lettuce Cups!
And before I give you the vinaigrette recipe here are a couple more beauty shots of my salad.

Combine all the ingredients and whisk until combined. Drizzle over your favorite salad.
