Cooking with Sara: A Waste of Time

So, today's recipe was Meh City. 

The reason that photo looks so pretty is that under and around the flank steak is the scrumptious salad we eat at least once a week.  So, you can go ahead and click on over to

for the recipe.  But, here, I'm going to list what we throw on our salad to make it so yum - with or without the meat.

Spring Mix lettuce and/or Butter Mix lettuce*
Mushrooms (this time, we grilled Portabellas)
Bell Peppers
Cranberries or Dried Currants
Brown Sugared Pecans
Fruit:  Pear slices, apple slices, or strawberry slices
Pecorino Romano, grated (for Bo, not me)
Either homemade Raspberry vinaigrette dressing or This Amazing Stuff

* Go easy on the lettuce to make room for all the other toppings.  I actually prefer my salads fairly low on lettuce and heavy on all the other stuff.  Healthier and yummier that way!!

Want my Raspberry Vinaigrette Dressing recipe?  Oh!  Well here you go:

Raspberry Vinaigrette Dressing

½ c. vegetable oil
½ c. raspberry wine vinegar
¼ c. white sugar
2 tsp. Dijon mustard
¼ tsp. dried oregano
¼ tsp. ground black pepper

In a jar with a tight fitting lid (or in a rinsed-out salad dressing bottle), combine the oil, vinegar, sugar, mustard, oregano, and pepper. Shake well.


  1. That dressing does look like the BOMB!
