One of my goals for the year has been to buy more cook books. I’m not a real collector of anything, but there’s just something so fun about owning a few good cook books (with great pictures, please!) and flipping through them when planning a menu. I find a lot of food inspiration online and from friends, family, restaurants, etc. But I love looking through pretty cook books.
Gwyneth Paltrow is one of my celebrity heroes (along with Kelly Rippa and Kristen Wiig…) so when I heard she was coming out with a cook book I scoped it out on Amazon, and bought it. It’s really pretty and I think she does a great job of balancing the healthy with the tasty.
Anyway, I decided to make a tea-house inspired salad one day so I thought I’d give one of her salad dressings a try. Balsamic and lime sounded interesting and flavorful, so I… uh… made it.
Sports analogy, because sports are obviously my thing… yeah.
All you need for this dressing is: 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar, 2 tablespoons honey, juice of 1 lime, 1/4 cup olive oil and salt and pepper to taste.
Whisk it all up. Drizzle it on. Devour.
I also made some mini fancy grilled cheese sandwiches to go along with this meal. More on those later this week.
Suspense, we all need a little in life. So… uh… you’re welcome.
