Thursday Night Nicoise Salad

Thursday Night Nicoise Salad
Allow all of your salad stars to shine on their own. Dress each component of your salad individually and pile onto a platter. Simple food is just so darn pretty. Make something like this whatever you have on hand!

B4 We Go Vegan

Big, fat, juicy grilled burgers topped with gorgonzola cheese and served on grilled and buttered sesame semolina bread, with all the fixins' on the side. Very very bad. LOL.
Marinated grilled mushrooms from Cousin Mary's girlfriend's mushroom farm! You really need to have FUN with your FUNghi. These shrooms were marinated with sweet onions in olive oil, freshly squeezed lemon juice, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper and freshly picked thyme, rosemary and sage. Throw it all onto the grill for about 5 minutes or so, toss a bit and grill for about another 5 until done to juicy perfection. Garnish with more fresh herbs. Chow down with some great bread or pile onto a salad or burger.

Sunday nights are so nice, aren't they?

We can go vegan next week.

Anyway, the mushrooms and the salad are vegan.... so are the toppers (homegrown tomatoes plus radishes, onions and avocado, right?)

Selective Veganism.

Love,

Katie
