Here's the recipe I promised to share in my first tablescape post. (here) A beautiful medley of farm-fresh vegetables and gorgeous vibrant colors make up this delicious and aromatic dish.
(Full recipe listed below)
I use a rotisserie chicken from Whole Foods - EASY!
Don't skimp on the onions! This recipe calls for four different kinds of onions and combined, they create the most delicious flavor! I didn't use pearl onions this time. (They only had frozen) I used these cute little guys instead, except I can't remember their name!
Four varieties of onions chopped and combined, spinach, roasted poblano pepper, tomatoes, chicken...
Vegetable oil, butter, onions, poblano pepper ~ salt
Add greens, tomatoes and garlic
Add white wine and chicken!

- Turn off the heat, and mount the remaining butter by rapidly stirring it into the sauce before serving.

Chef O'Malley also features a roasted lemon yogurt with this dish.

I need to get busy on my next tablescape don't I? July is almost over! I'm not sure I'll be able to motivate myself to do a red, white and blue table as I had planned… We will see.
