Bratwurst and Gruyere Salad



    I wish I could remember where I found this salad recipe but I cannot.  It has been in our repertoire for many, many years.  It is super easy and makes for a very tasty light dinner or lunch.  Round it out with a baguette and a nice glass of white wine.  It is a lavish touch on a busy weeknight and takes only a few minutes to put together.  Trust me.  This may be your next go-to salad.

Ingredients

1 lb cooked bratwurst, sliced
1 shallot, thinly sliced
1/2 pint cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
3 oz Gruyere cheese, diced
Salad greens

For the dressing:
1T good quality Dijon mustard
Olive oil

In a bowl, combine the mustard and 1/4 cup olive oil and whisk until emulsified.  Taste and add more oil if needed until you have a thick and tasty dressing.

In this same bowl, add the shallots, cheese and tomatoes.  Stir to combine.

Place greens on plates.  Top greens with dressed ingredients.  Add a bit of salt and pepper and serve.

Enjoy!
