Tuna and Tomato Salad
A famous salad at Peter Luger's is their tomato and onion salad, so I decided to do a delicious dish we had in Spain. A phenomenal tuna from Spain with heirloom tomatoes and red onions. Topped the onions off with some sherry vinegar and olive oil and you got a fun summer salad.
The classic steakhouse salad grilled - if you haven't tried it, you need to do it at your next meal. Eggs, anchovies, garlic, lemon juice, and piave cheese made the dressing and grilling it incorporates a smokiness to the salad and brings out the sweetness in the lettuce as well.
Instead of doing the traditional creamed spinach I decided to amp it up with some dried currants, pine nuts, sesame seeds, and the cabrales blue cheese which adds the faux creamed spinach thing. Complex stuff going on here with the nuttiness, sweetness, and funky creaminess from the awesome cabrales.
