Okay, I know this filet mignon carpaccio salad is a dramatic one. Carpaccio is, after all, raw meat or fish that is pounded super-thin and served, well, raw. And much as I love it, I know not everyone is a fan of raw stuff, but those who are, this is so decadently scrumptious that I couldn’t resist. Ready to wow your adventurous dinner guests? Let’s make it!
Here I present to you another case of not leaving well enough alone, because you KNOW I can’t help taking perfectly good recipes and mashing them up together. And I have to say, it doesn’t always work, but when it does work.., well, yum! And that was happily the case with these Caesar salad burgers. Your classic hamburger, covered not in ketchup and pickles but with a generous topping of Caesar salad and parmesan cheese.

I will freely admit it – I can be annoying to go out to eat with. Maybe it is because I am a food blogger (although I kind of doubt it, because all my wonderful food blogger friends are amazingly nice, sweet, the opposite-of-annoying people. David and Robyn and Lori and Lindsay and Kristen and Joanne, I’m looking at you guys).

Sometimes it doesn’t work out…well. Like the 25 times I crashed and burned trying to make chicken fried steak. Those were dark days. But sometimes…oh sometimes I manage to reassemble a recipe into something that we both agree is pretty dang great. That could of course be his self-preservation instincts kicking in, but in the case of this Steak Caesar Salad, I do think I may have added something to the Caesar salad pantheon. See what you think!
Summer, you are finally here. After the longest winter EVER, we’ve finally reached those lazy, hazy days. Days full of swimming pools and beaches and leaving the windows open at night. And of course days and evenings full of barbecue lunches and suppers. Steaks and burgers and chicken on the grill, with potato salad and green salad on the side. The only thing that could possibly make things better might be to put the potato salad and the green salad together. As in Potato Caesar salad!
I know, you are looking at that picture up there and you are thinking, she’s finally eaten one too many piece of bacon and is now putting LETTUCE on her grill instead of in a nice normal salad bowl where it belongs. And I have to tell you I was all kinds of skeptical beforeRead More & Get the Recipe
Summer is getting so close I can almost taste it, and one of the things I love best about summer is having my wooden barrels full of herbs. I plant little basil, parsley, thyme, mint, sage, rosemary and tarragon plants, and by the middle of July I am doing everything I can to keep upRead More & Get the Recipe
