Since we've been having pretty low-maintenece dinners (last night was steak, corn and more asparagus)these past few nights, I've been having fun making fun salads. Well, they're actually pretty boring salads but I've been whipping up some fun dressings (other than the standard mustard vinaigrette that I usually do).

Here are my 3 favorites:
Italian Vinaigrette: red wine vinegar (1 part), olive oil (3 parts), chopped shallot, a pinch of sugar, salt and pepper
Balsamic Vinaigrette: balsamic vinegar, olive oil, chopped shallots (optional), pinch of sugar (optional), mustard powder (optional), salt and pepper
Mustard Vinaigrette: dijon mustard (preferably Amora), red wine vinegar, salt and pepper, olive oil

Dressings are so easy, I don't know why anybody would buy that Thousand Island crap by Kraft.

The one thing I do want to say about the steak last night (a rib-eye purchased from Bell Market) was that it really resembled an entrecote, my very favorite cut of steak that I eat in France (well, I've technically only eaten it once, but I still think about it a lot!). It's a flat cut and when cooked rare, it's quite tasty!
