This salad served with my MMH dressing is just screaming with delight!
If you don't like broccoli, this will change your mind......

2 cups of broccoli florets ( microwaved with a soaking wet paper towel for 2 minutes - or steam if you're not in a big rush)
*you may substitute with haricot vert *(fancy name for those cute string beans)
1 large sweet onions carmelized in olive oil
2 plum tomatoes quartered
Shavings of a very good goat cheese - ( or parmessan cheese )
4 medium size red or yukon gold potatoes thickly sliced - seasoned with salt and olive oil; roast in the oven for 50 minutes until golden brown and a little crispy.
Mixed everything in a large bowl, top with goat cheese shavings, and serve with MMH dressing.
You may even add some well deserved crisped bacon bits !
A great side dish for just about anything...especially a big thick juicy steak!

MMH dressing:
2 parts mustard (Dijon)
4 parts mayonnaise
A drizzle of honey (as sweet as you want it to taste....or not)
Whisk in a bowl
