A few leftover broiled lamb loin chops were the inspiration for this wonderful salad Mr TBTAM invented for tonight’s dinner. The chops were from Costco, and we had broiled them last night after topping with salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce and garlic powder. Mr TBTAM picked up the rest of the ingredients at Golden Boy’s Natural Foods, a wonderful local food shop on Broadway at 98th st, while waiting for me to finish my voice lesson around the corner. (I’m working on the Queen of the Night Aria from the Magic Flute – I plan to use it on my daughters whenever they need hollering at…)
Golden Boys is one of my fave local food stores, and I stop in whenever I can before my lesson. They have the most gorgeous fruits and veggies, lovely bean sprouts (which are hard to find fresh) and also carry Bilinski’s chicken sausages, which I love.
I’m thinking maybe we should have added something for a bit more color – maybe a tomato? Maybe red onion instead of scallion? – yeah, that would work….
