...Now back to the grill!!!! I have been grilling up a storm- no fruit or veggie is safe, I shall grill them all!! (Insert evil megalomaniac laugh here).
Last night's salad contained:
-Spinach and Romaine lettuce (ungrilled, unfortunately. Fortunately?)
-half of a grilled salmon burger
-grilled Baby Carrots
-grilled Tomato slices
-parmesan and goat cheese
-soy sauce/ honey/ red pepper flake/ five spice sauce dressing mixture
The grilled tomatoes especially came out sooo good! I even got grill marks on mine, though you can’t really tell in the picture because I proceeded to drown them in a shower of parmesan. The cheese melted into the hot tomato and it soaked up a lot of dressing and was so incredibly flavourful. I am now a firm believer that veggies are meant to be eaten after grilling- the carrots and snowpeas were so crunchy and tasty!
Pineapple was the real star in this dish, though I can’t take credit for that one. The roomie marinated pineapple halves in rum and brown sugar and then barbequed them at her parents’ place a few days ago. They developed a deliciously crispy, slightly charred crust and got even sweeter, if that’s possible. The combination of pineapple with the goat cheese and salmon was unbelievable.
Pictured below is tonight's grilled veggies delight, pretty much the same as last night's except without tomato or parm. I added in deli turkey and used raspberry flavoured balsamic vinegar for a dressing. Mmmm soo delicious :)
...And this. By far the BEST coffee-flavoured yogurt I have ever tried. Not too bitter and not too sweet, but creamy beyond any other. I loved it and have already gone through half the container. Oops.
Have a happy Saturday night! I'm watching The Godfather for the first time (shame on me I know, I haven't seen any of those classic "must see" movies) and then tomorrow night I think I'm getting together with some friends to have an Italian-themed potluck while we watch more Godfather!
