Blt salad inspired by bon appetit email

Okay….this got posted incomplete!!!

Here is my mise en place for this email inspired idea…romaine, parmesan, homemade dressing, smoked blue cheese, tomato, avocado, bacon, garlic, radish, shishito (that i grew!), cucumber….i took like 4 pictures because this has the red pepper that i removed but didnt have the egg i added, etc


Grilled romaine…yep, i flipped and grilled again


Grilling avocado. They made nice grill marks


This is my first try at a grilled chopped blt salad.

It was good:-)


Tonights cocktail was bubbly rose with some Pama splashed in it.

My grill gets korean

I wanted to grill.   I was thinking how we grill kimchi at korean bbq….somehow i didnt get grilled kimchi but i got kimchi, grilled soy things, grilled rice cakes…


I made some sprouts and cucs as sides:


Since my partner is allergic to sesame…i made it with hot chili oil and gochujang and salt


Found this recipe online…quick marinade.  Salt sugar and coconut vinegar and i threw in a few pepper flakes and garlic

The rice cake marinated a bit in kimchi

Soy ginger dressing on the eggplant

Bok choi with hot oil


It all gets grilled



Homemade kimchi on the side



Yum
