The main part of the meal that I was most excited for though was a simple spinach salad. I lightly chopped some baby spinach leaves. On top of the spinach, I placed some sliced strawberries and a few blueberries. Next I layered on some Rosemary and Olive oil flavored Romano cheese. I just lightly crumbled the cheese after cutting it from the block I bought. Next up was a light layer of crunchy fried onion pieces (similar to what you normally find on the top of green bean casserole!) I originally wanted to use crushed nuts for the topping but discovered I didn't have any so that prompted the change to the fried onions and I was really happy with the change. I used Girard's Champagne dressing and it was delicious!
For dessert, I gave grilled fruit a try.
I had a very ripe pineapple to cut up and so decided to try grilled pineapple as my sweet finish to the meal. I filled a plastic baggie with some brown sugar and cinnamon. I mixed the two together and then dropped my pineapple spears into the mixture. I made sure that each spear got coated with the mixture and then placed onto the grill. It took a few minutes per side as the sugar mixture caramelized. I was left with a sweet pineapple treat that had just a hint of the cinnamon flavor. It was delicious and I will definitely try this again!
