Poached Egg Antipasto Salad
14 Jan 2006
So, I'm really working on becoming more domestic, especially in the kitchen. As much as I enjoy making new things, the idea of buying all new ingredients for one dish overwhelms me and often those ingredients go to waste after that one fab dish is made. I'm an avid viewer of Good Deal with Dave Lieberman on the Food Network because he combines some store bought items with fresh ingredients to make really easy, yet great dishes. Here's a salad I came up with accidentally based on leftovers I had in the fridge...
~ Spinach leaves
~ Roasted red peppers, hot peppers, fresh mozzerella, and Italian meats...all part of a previously purchased Antipasto plate
~ And, my added special ingredient...2 poached eggs. This may seem like an odd thing on a salad, but it's very common in Europe (I think...) and really delicious!
~ Top with balsamic viniagrette dressing, freshly grated parmesean, freshly grated pepper, and for some extra spice...a sprinkle of cayenne pepper!
