A salad a day keeps the doctor away. At least that’s a rule I live by. Salad is legitimately my favorite food, and I do eat one everyday. I change up the way I make them though, which means I never get sick of eating the ‘same old boring salad.’ Some days it’s really simple with just some greens, other raw chopped veggies and a drizzle of olive oil. Other days it’s epic, like this grilled tri tip and brie salad.
Brie might be one of the most perfect foods. It pairs so well with sweet and savory, hot and cold, for breakfast lunch or dinner. No matter what you’re eating, brie would make it better. I can’t even say that about ice cream. Is brie better than ice cream? Let’s not be ridiculous.
As far as the tri tip, it’s quickly becoming one of my favorite cuts of meat. The fat marbled through the beef caramelizes so wonderfully when it’s cooked, unlike other cuts of beef. I took a bite, looked at Jon and said, “I understand why people like the fat on beef now. This is good stuff.” Or maybe it’s the dry rub I put on it that pairs so beautifully with it. Either way, this grilled tri tip is superb! And it’s so SOOOO easy! Make it for dinner tonight, then slice the leftovers to go over this salad tomorrow. 2 awesome meals, and only a little time spent in the kitchen.
