Some warm temperatures lately have definitely given us the feeling of summer. Hot humid days does not encourage lengthy time in the kitchen. Why not a quick salad. What a better way to enjoy the seasonal vegetables but in a salad with a special added ingredient. My friend Katie was sweet enough to bring me back the perfect souviner from her recent trip to France. Her knowing how I love to cook, the surprise of receiving some Fleurs de Sel was the highlight of my week.
To enjoy the above salad, mix together with a big swirl of olive oil, 1 diced zuchinni, 8 diced mushrooms, 1 diced green pepper and 1 small sweet onion diced. Season with a pinch of kosher salt and a few grinds of black pepper. Roast for 30 mins at 350 degrees.
While the vegetable are roasting assemble your salad. A few big handfuls of mixed greens, pistachios and craisins lightly tossed together with CW2C's Classic Vinaigrette. Top the salad with a big sprinkle of the secret ingredient.
Fleur de Sel can be your secret ingredient too. Add a couple pinches to any of your summer creations and enjoy the ocean flavor Fleur de Sel will bring to your table.
