fried shallots & blue cheese salad

Mention the word fried shallots and I’ve come to think that you could convince me to cook anything. When I saw this recipe I knew that it needed a place on my table, and originally it had been part of my Easter dinner meal.

It didn’t make it on the Easter table, but did make it on the dinner table this week with Easter left-overs – kind of counts, right? Salty cheese and crispy shallots over mâche greens. Essentially, my idea of perfection.

Fried Shallots & Blue Cheese Salad serves 4

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • salt & pepper
  • 2 large shallots, thinly sliced
  • 6 cups mâche greens
  • 2 -4 oz blue cheese

Combine 1 Tbsp olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper. Whisk together and set aside. Heat remaining olive oil in pan. Add shallots and cook over medium heat until lightly crispy, about 5 to 7 minutes. Drizzle dressing over greens and top with shallots and blue cheese.

    Love the fried shallots. I really need to master the whole fried onion thing. I can’t seem to get them to turn out right.

    Oh, this is perfect – I have both shallots and blue cheese on hand right now. I may have to substitute spinach for the mache, but it should still be good.
    Thanks for posting!
