Recipe by Karen Barris Calabro
"This is a summer favorite that I served in many restaurants, inspired by my 'oops, the Cabernet wine has turned again in the heat,' moments. This is usually the meal, but it may also be an appetizer salad as well. I offered it as both in my restaurants. The dressing and pecans keep for a few weeks unrefrigerated, and I often make these in bulk in advance for several meals. A simple dish, easily made by any level cook, it is a stylish, beautiful, and delectable entree salad fit for company."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Outstanding recipe, worthy of any Five Star restaurant! The cabernet-cherry vinaigrette is absolutely delicious. This really is NOT a complicated recipe. It looks like there are a lot of steps, but you can be doing more than one step at the same time. I was a little concerned about the marinade ingredients not being enough to marinade 4 steaks, so I added an extra tablespoon of EVOO & porto, which was a good call. I also didn't have any radishes on hand, so I used 3 green onions instead. Other than those changes, I followed the recipe to a "T". Just an awesome salad, and one that I won't forget!
I agree with the other poster that this is not a difficult recipe...just more steps (which is great because it breaks it down and therefore easily manageable).
I have been experimenting with microfarming here in the city and I enjoyed using my fresh mesclun salad mix that I just harvested the day before.
