julia's salad

We were invited over to friend's for dinner on Monday.  It was one of those out of the blue invitations that was just so much fun.  Even the first question made me laugh, "Do you eat steak?"

And the food.  Now, Mike can grill.  The steak and the asparugus were lovely.  It was the first time that I ever had asparugus a way I liked and I like it grilled.  But Julia made this salad.  I have been craving it since.  I wanted it last night but I had to wait until tonight.  I actually changed it up a bit because of what I had but is that what salads are supposed to be?

Julia's Salad

Romaine lettuce, torn into small pieces

A couple handfuls of strawberries, washed, hulled, and sliced

An asian pear (or a truly ripe pear if you cannot find an asian), sliced into bite size pieces

Feta or chevre cheese

Mix the romaine, strawberries, and pear in a large bowl.  Sprinkle with cheese.  Serve with the dressing of your choice.

I was thinking about it and thought some nuts might be good to.  Maybe next time becasue there will be a next time!

My grandmother used to make a super yummy salad that is . Shredded romaine, diced pineapple, and shredded cheddar(of any variety, though extra sharp tends to overpower). super refreshing on a hot summer day. Fresh shredded cocinut on it too is good as well.
