This is a nice summer meal, it is light, refreshing and overall delicious. BIG thanks to Chef Dan Richer at Rancho La Puerta!

20150819RLPEdit-5724

 

 Each ingredient is chosen for how its flavors influence its neighbor; they all must work together to form a tasty assembly.

Salad (Recipe)

Strawberries- 3-5 per person.  Pears or apples work fine as a seasonal substitute.

Goat Cheese- 1 ounce per person

Fresh Basil- 1 bunch, finely cut

Chervil- 1 bunch, use leaves picked from stem

Tarragon- 3 sprigs, use leaves picked from stem

Black Pepper- 5 turns of a mill

Walnuts- 1 ounce or any of the freshest toasted nuts available

Baby Salad Greens- loose handful per person

Balsamic Vinaigrette (Recipe)

Balsamic Vinegar- 2 ounces by volume

Apple Cider Vinegar- 1 tablespoon

Honey- 1 teaspoon

Mustard- 1 teaspoon

Grape Seed Oil- 16 ounces by volume, can use any neutral oil like canola if preferred

Black Pepper- 2 turns

Salt- to taste

For the dressing:

Add the apple and balsamic vinegars, honey, and mustard to a blender or food processor.  With the machine running at mid tempo, very slowly add the grape seed oil to create an emulsion.  Season with the salt and pepper.

To Assemble:

Gently mix the baby salad greens and tarragon, basil and chervil.  Dress lightly with the balsamic vinaigrette, tossing until each leaf of baby salad greens is gently coated.

Serve family style mixed together in a big bowl or plate each serving. To plate, space the strawberries around the edges of salad plates and add a small spoonful of the basil goat cheese in between. Place the greens in the center of the plate.  Top the greens with a few walnuts, and serve.
