For February’s Secret Recipe Club, I was paired with Lauren of Healthy Delicious. It was SO HARD to choose just one thing to make as there are so many ridiculously delicious looking recipes on Lauren’s blog! I had a bit of a pinning fest including: Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie, Taco Casserole, Cassoulet with White Beans, Sausage and Turkey, and Chicken and Spaetzle Soup. She also has a section called “cooking for one,” where she shares recipes that are perfect to make when it’s just you for dinner.
In the end, I chose to make her shaved asparagus salad with bacon and havarti. Naturally gluten free, naturally scrumptious and with bacon, it’s sure to be a hit with Mr. Bean. And it was! He was sad that I had kept some separate to photograph it. The flavours really complemented each other well and I have to admit that I was also a bit sad when I finished my salad, too!
I did make a few changes – Lauren’s original salad comes with poached eggs, but since we were having something else with dinner, I decided not to include them. I also add some red onion slices that had been sauteed in the bacon grease and only used about half the amount of dressing the recipe called for. Even with the changes, the salad was amazing!
Please make sure that you check out all the recipes from everyone else in Group D!
