Early Spring Greens Soup

Method:

In a large saucepan, melt butter with oil and sauté onions until translucent.

Add the asparagus, spinach, watercress and lettuce and cook, stirring occasionally.

Add half of the broth, cover, and simmer mixture over medium heat for about 15 minutes.

Next, place broth mixture – this is easiest done in batches – in a food processor or blender and pulse to puree.

Once entire mixture is pureed, return to saucepan, add remaining broth and simmer, uncovered for about 10 minutes.

Add salt and pepper to taste and serve hot, garnished with the lemon zest.


Steak and Arugula Salad

In a large bowl, combine the romaine lettuce, endive, red onion, arugula and tomatoes, and half of the cheese.

Toss the salad with enough vinaigrette to coat. Season the salad with salt and pepper and arrange on a platter. Cut the steaks crosswise into thin slices.

We recommend New York, rib-eye or filet mignon - pan fried or grilled and then chilled

Arrange on top of the salad, add remaining salad, drizzle with dressing and serve immediately.
