Quick and Delicious
This salad took so little time to throw together but it tasted like I'd spent all night on it. I added gorgonzola cheese to compliment the tenderloin. The warm balsamic dressing really brought it all together nicely.
I didn't think my kids were going to eat this because they are so picky and they never agree on a dish. But they did this one. They loved it and they even went back for more. I did it just like the recipe called for and the flavor was great. I will be making this a lot, it's quick, easy, tastes great and filling.
Wow - what a flavorful and easy recipe. I will definitely be making this again. My 9 year old daughter asked for more and more. I did make a few modifications: substituted sirloin steak for the tenderloin and I seasoned the steak with garlic salt before cooking it. Thanks for the recipe!
This was a great meal. It was quick and easy to prepare. As a slight variation, I think the meat /vingrette would go great with rice. My kids liked this meal and they are very picky eaters. I highly reccommend that you give this recipe a try! You won't be disappointed.
I wasn't sure that this salad would be filling enough for us, but it was just the right amount of food and it tasted great. It was nice to be able to make a good dressing for the salad on my own, instead of relying on something from a bottle to liven up the meal. Also, I used regular diced tomatoes instead of cherry tomatoes. I'll definitely make this again!
I tried this last night, but substituted Wine Vinegar for the Balsamic and used Romaine instead of baby greens. It turned out very nice. I would suggest tossing the romaine lettuce with the sauce prior to serving so that it may soak up the flavour.
My husband prepared this meal last night, all by himself. It was
one of the best recipes I have had. Follow the instructions and it
is foolproof. This is a must for anyones collections.
I give this a 5++.
