Summertime Salad: Steak, Berries and Goat Cheese with Apricot-Balsamic Vinaigrette

This salad was excellent. The berries were very juicy and sweet and the herbs on the goat cheese were full of flavor. I warmed the cheese in a pan, which gave it an extra creamy texture. It would also be great to encrust the cheese in nuts before warming it (I think pecans or walnuts would work well). Overall, this had a nice balance of sweet and savory and the whole thing was filling without feeling heavy.

Springtime Risotto with Porcini, Ramps, and Asparagus

One thing I love about risotto is that just about anything tastes good in it, so it can be very seasonal. I used some nice spring asparagus and ramps in this. Unfortunately, I can never find a good selection of mushrooms here so I didn’t have many options. The dried porcinis were perfect though- they added a nice heartiness to the dish, and I used some of the broth from rehydrating them to flavor the rice.
