After a pretty indulgent weekend (Mark and I attended Savor CT this weekend – blog recaps to come), I knew dinner tonight needed to be on the simple side. I did not want anything too heavy so I decided to prepare one of my “go to” recipes – a light but hearty Asian Kale Salad with Grilled Steak.
I don’t know about you, but there is nothing worse then waking up on Monday morning – knowing you have to run and having that “too full” feeling before you head out the door. This dinner would be a good way to “get back on track” for the week ahead.
What’s great about this salad is that I can prep (aka massage) the salad in the early afternoon and let it “marinate” for a couple of hours. Then all that needs to be done is to have Mark fire up and grill the steak.
What I also love about this salad is that it makes both Mark and I happy – I get a large and in-charge salad and Mark gets steak – it’s a great compromise and really isn’t that what marriage is all about
The version of the kale salad I made tonight is one that I have made numerous times and my methodology has gotten to the point where I can add “a little bit of this” and a “little bit of that” and it still comes out great. I really love recipes like that.
