(Filet Mignon in Puff Pastry) I prefer not to eat out on Valentine's Day, hate fighting the crowds, the noise, the usually bad service because the restaurant is jam packed, the expense...could I have a little cheese with my "whine"? LOL! Here's what I made for the main course last year, and it was to DIE for. Almost too pretty to eat....almost! Enjoy!!! *Prep-time does not include chilling time.
I'm not sure what these have to do with a ranch, (Don't you wonder where some dishes get their names?) but they're good. The ground beef is very optional. I leave it out, to cut down on both cost and calories.
I don't know what else to call this. We had something similar in a Peruvian restaurant in CA and I've been trying to find out it's name ever since. It was served with a flat bread but I think pita triangles would work out great too!
This recipe is delicious! The sesame oil gives it a nutty and unusual flavor. I just made it for a picnic I'm going to. After tasting it, I know it's a salad I'll be making many more times. From the cookbook Lean and Luscious and Meatless.
Pico de Gallo adds a flavor to this dish that is unique, the garlic and jalapeños blend very nicely. I purchase the pico de gallo in the vegetable section of our supermarket, but there are several good recipes here on Zaar also
