This week's French Fridays with Dorie challenge is for this wonderful beet salad. We also cooked ahead and made the fish en Papillote - both dishes were wonderful & we're sure to enjoy them again!
Chunky Beet Salad
We make a lot of salads with fresh ingredients from our garden and the Farmers' Market. This one is just incredible - a perfect blend of flavors. We followed one of the Bonne Idee suggestions and topped it with Gorgonzola Cheese - the Californian in me couldn't resist throwing a few Walnuts on top! I loved the vinaigrette and will make it again & again! We used Lemon Thyme from our garden as our herb choice.
Mahi-Mahi and Tomatoes en Papillote
Although we eat a lot of fish, neither one of us is a fan of Salmon, so we chose to make this dish with Mahi-Mahi - a firm white fish. This is such an easy way to prepare fish - and the clean up is a cinch! We used Lime Olive Oil. The blending of flavors was just perfect. A good, basic technique to add to your repertoire that would work well with a number of seasonings.
For another way to prepare fish en Papillote, see our Ahi Tuna en Papillote.
Clean and half about 6 Red Potatoes.
Boil in salted water for about 20 minutes, or until easily pierced with a fork.
