I’m obsessed. Scratch that…WE’RE obsessed!!

Sacre coeur

{Sacre cœur Basilica…the salad place is in this vecinity! Basílica del Sagrado Corazón…el lugar de las ensaladas esta por este rumbo!}

As we were reminiscing this last week about our trip to Paris last year I was reminded of the wonderful salad we had the last day we were there.  Yes, I said salad. I don’t exactly remember what was in our respective salads, but I do remember the delicious garlic roasted potatoes that were on every single salad in the place.  I don’t remember the name of the place and I wouldn’t be able to tell you how to get there.  I would however be able to take you there….I can FOR SURE make my way back once out of the metro!! Anyway, I couldn’t stop thinking about it so I got me some potatoes and got to work.  Now since I don’t remember the actual ingredients I worked with ones available in my fridge. The result was absolutely MAGICAL! I call it Yanessa’s Salade à la Parisienne!! ha!! It turned out so so so good that I’ve made my version of it TWICE in the last week and have decided to share with you as I’m sure you will love it as much as we did. La semana pasada estabamos recordando nuestro viaje a París y me acordé de la ensalada deliciosísima que pedimos la última noche que estuvimos allá. No me acuerdo de los ingredientes, pero me acuerdo que tenía papas asadas con ajo en todas las ensaladas del menú.  Tampoco me acuerdo del nombre del lugar ni de la dirección.  Pero SEGURO si podría encontrar el lugar una vez fuera del metro!!! Bueno, como no podía parar de pensar en esa deliciosa ensalada compré unas papas y a trabajar. Ok como ya les dije no me acordé de los ingredientes así que hice lo que pude con lo que tenía en mi refri. Y resultó en algo espectacular y mágico!! Le puse de nombre: Ensalada Yanessa a la Parisina!!!! jaja!! Salió tan pero tan tan rica que la hice 2 veces en la misma semana y tenía que compartirles.

(side note: I don’t measure anything so …. you’ll have to guess and make it to your liking! notita: yo no mido nada así…. que tendran que adivinar y hacer las cosas a su gusto!)

MAGICAL INGREDIENTS/INGREDIENTES MÁGICOS:

* Baby arugula mix/lechuga mixta

* Hearts of palm/Palmitos

* Bacon (side note: whoever invented the concept of bacon was a genius…bacon makes everything better!!) Tocino (notita: quien haya inventado el concepto del tocino es un genio….el tocino hace mejor al mundo!!)

* Avocado/Aguacate

* Grated pecorino cheese/Queso pecorino


* Roasted Potatoes..I get the tricolored pack from Trader Joe’s (we’re in love with garlic so I use a lot….mixed with some olive oil, salt and pepper)/ Papas asadas….yo compro el trio que venden en Trader Joe’s (nosotros amamos el ajo asi que use bastante….junto con aceite de oliva, sal y pimienta)

DRESSING/ADEREZO:

* Olive oil/Aceite de oliva

* Lemon juice (real please…don’t use the bottled stuff, that’s nasty.)/Jugo de limon amarillo (porfa usen el de verdad….no el juguito enbotellado…es malísimo.)

* Salt & pepper/Sal y pimienta

I like to throw the lettuce, cheese, oil, lemon, salt, pepper and hearts of palm in a big bowl and mix. Then I divide it and add the bacon, avocado and potatoes to each plate evenly. As a finishing touch I made some finger sized “croutons”….basically just sliced up some french baguette and toasted it in the oven with a dash of some awesome french mustard we discovered in Paris. A mi me gusta mezclar la lechuga, el queso, aceite, sal, pimienta y los palmitos en una olla grande.  Despues la divido y agrego el tocino, aguacate y las papas a cada plato.  Y para terminar unas rebanaditas de baguette tostado con una mostaza que nos encontramos en París.

{Baguette + fancy mustard = very French! ha! Baguette + mostaza elegante = super francés! ja!}

{Looks good right? Se ve rica no?}

Enjoy!! Provecho, que la disfruten!!

Besos,

~Mrs. B
