Blue Mixed Greens Salad
Toss salad until all ingredients are evenly coated with EVOO and balsamic. Serve salad on plate and top with a serving of sliced marinated flank steak.
Dust one side of flank steak with a light coating of garlic powder; follow with a light coating of black pepper. Pour the lemon juice and soy sauce over the meat. Flip the meat from side to side in the marinade until both sides are fully coated with marinade. Cover will tin foil and refrigerate.
Remove steak from fridge about 20-30 minutes before you are ready to grill. Grill steak on direct, medium high setting for 15 minutes, turning once. Remove steak from grill and cover tightly with tin foil; allow steak to sit for at least 10 minutes before cutting into thin strips.
Put potatoes in a pot and cover with water. Cook potatoes on high heat at a rapid boil until soft when pierced with a fork. Once tender, drain off all water and return to stove.
Potatoes should be in a single layer on the bottom of the pan. (Depending on the size of your pot, you may have to complete this step in two batches.) Sprinkle all the potatoes with kosher salt (approx 1 TBSP per pound), cover and cook at medium high heat for 1 minute. While potatoes are still covered, begin to shake pan from side to side so that potatoes become fully coated in salt and do not stick to pan. Return to heat for 30 seconds and shake again. Do this several times until potatoes no longer look moist and there is a white powdery look to the skins. Remove from heat and place in a single layer on a platter until ready to serve. Serve with Cilantro Dipping Sauce.
Add all ingredients into a food processor until paste-like. Serve beside Salty Papas.
Create a bed of whipped cream in a small dessert bowl. Place blueberries and strawberries side by side, then top with a dollop of whipped cream. Enjoy.
Place cream and sugar in a bowl and whip on high speed with a mixer until stiff peaks form. (This should take 3-4 minutes.) Enjoy.
