If you are a bean aficionado, you'll love this salad. There are lima, kidney, green and pinto beans, along with some crunchy celery, red pimento, and chopped pepper. A sweet vinaigrette is stirred in, and then all is chilled for a few hours to let the flavors mingle. Serves ten.
This carpaccio has it all: buttery beef tenderloin, fresh Parmigiano-Reggiano, arugula, and just the right mustard-lemon tang in the dressing. What could be more romantic than a meat-heart for your sweetheart?
