||2.5 / 10
Em wants me to start making dinner salads so this was attempt #2. It was not nearly as successful as attempt #1. The flavors were bad and the texture was worse. While that was unfortunate, we at least have our very first non-keeper since the creation of this blog. The consecutive keeper posts were starting to give the very false impression that we do not make crappy dishes fairly often…
||30-Minute Arugula Salad with Sausage and White Beans
||4 / 10 – Takes a decent number of steps, especially when you make your own dressing, but it is really fast and pretty easy
|Time to Complete
||~45 minutes (once I get awesome at chopping things, it will be closer to the promised 30 minutes)
||Yea, but we had no interest in them
||Putting warm items (in this case, onions and peppers coated in dressing/sauce) on top of cold arugula turns the arugula into a hot side dish, not a salad. This seems obvious – maybe I was supposed to let the stuff cool down, but I don’t think so.
|Any Recipe Deviations?
||Nope – the flavors were ok at best. The red onions are overpowering in the salad. The mustardy dressing was not great. And the texture was too weird
|Changes Next Time?
||No next time…
