Ingredients
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • 2 large portobell0 mushrooms, stemmed, wiped clean and cut into bite-size pieces
  • 4 slices red onion
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp. of Merlot wine
  • 6 asparagus stalks cut into 1-inch sections
  • 2 tbsp. crumbled blue cheese
  • 2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. water
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 6 cups red bibb lettuce, chopped
  • 2 roasted peppers, canned or fresh, sliced
  • 1/2 cup croutons

  • Methods/steps
    1. In a small pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the mushrooms, onions and garlic. Saut until the vegetables are tender, 4 to 6 minutes. Add the wine and cook until it evaporates completely, about 1 minute.
    2. In a pot fitted with a steamer basket, bring 1 inch of water to a boil. Add the asparagus. Cover and steam until tender-crisp, 2 to 3 minutes. Set aside.
    3. In a small bowl, add the blue cheese, balsamic vinegar, water and black pepper. Whisk to mix thoroughly. Add 3 cups of lettuce to each plate. Top each with 1/2 of the mushroom mixture, 1/2 of the asparagus, 1 roasted red pepper, 1/2 of the blue cheese dressing mixture and 1/4 cup croutons. Serve immediately.
