One of Jillian Dreusike’s favorite palate-pleasers is a homemade grilled steak, gorgonzola, tomato and EVOO bruschetta. She simply suggests dicing up all ingredients and tossing them together. Serve right away or store in the fridge for a few hours.
- 1 loaf French baguette, sliced and toasted
- 2 tablespoons EVOO (or your favorite olive oil)
- About one pound of steak, cooked and diced
- 3 beefsteak/heirloom/Roma tomatoes, diced
- 1/2 cup crumbled gorgonzola cheese
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
- Salt and pepper
Even the busiest people take time to slow down and enjoy a fresh meal during the summer. Jillian Dreusike, the founder of allongée, is a fiend for fresh produce, especially her own basil plant that lives in her city-window.
