Winter Salad & Parmesan Twists! Elémentaire TV Episode 15: O - Omelette

Angels Camp, CA...In this weeks episode, Dave makes a fabulous winter salad featuring sliced pear and melon with arugula with a Black Pepper Vanilla Bean Vinaigrette. Jenny will show you how to make a simple but delicious cayenne and parmesan bread twist out of puff pastry. Elémentaire is the creation of two professional cooks dedicated to helping take the mystery out of making delicious meals from scratch. Our goal is to educate through the use of culinary terms and techniques and also inspire, through the use of the freshest seasonal ingredients, all who watch to make their own meals to enjoy at home.

In a medium bowl, toss the watercress and the arugula with 3-4 tablespoons of the black pepper vanilla bean vinaigrette.

On a plate, place some of the greens in the center and arrange ¼ of the slices artfully around the center pointing out. Drizzle each plate with the remaining Black Pepper-Vanilla Bean Vinaigrette and salt and pepper to taste.
