I consider myself a big fan of Top Chef shows. Top Chef Masters season 3 is currently airing and recently I was inspired to recreate one of the Quickfire winning dishes. This Quickfire challenge was really unique as the chefs were asked to create an appetizer that cost less than a dollar. Chef Naomi Pomeroy came out as the winner for this challenge with her well balanced flavor salad : Asparagus & Bread Salad with Cherry Tomato & Lemon Vinaigrette
This salad is really easy to prepare and it tastes absolutely delicious.
