My Kind Of Salad

Continuing on with our cavalcade of meaty delights, cousin Jan ordered a salad topped with brisket for her lunch. She could have had pulled pork or barbecued chicken as her topper, but she was in a beefy sort of mood. Clearly, cousin Jan was the only one in our group of three with any kind self-restraint - she actually chose to eat green stuff at the Porkhouse!

She gave me a taste and I have to admit, it was very good. Not only did it have several nice, tender slices of brisket daubed with a tangy barbecue sauce, it also sported fresh mixed greens, ripe tomatoes (how long has it been since you actually had a ripe tomato in a restaurant salad?), red onion, and artichoke hearts.

For dressing, she was offered several choices and, due to the nature of the Porkhouse, which has a Western theme, she chose ranch.  Good choice - it complemented the brisket well.

Jan was quite pleased with her choice and I had to admit that although I'm not a huge salad fan, this is my kind of salad.

Yeah, that's my kind of salad, too. Just enough greens to ease the guilt (very slight) of all the great beef!

Oh you two! Nothing wrong with a big plate of greens, dressed with olive oil and lemon juice.

Katiez, ha ha! You're my kind of gal, too! :-)

Nancy, I think greens need some help from crunchy and crisp things, too - carrots, croutons, celery - anything to give some variety.

Greg, why didn't we think of that? Oh, yeah - it's because they don't serve any alcohol at the Porkhouse. :-)
