Recipe of the Week

The recipe of the week this week is from Real Simple magazine.  I ended up getting the wrong cut of meat and Mark’s comment was, “this would be really good if we had the right meat.”  He thought the flavor profile was really good, but wasn’t as good as it could have been.  We can’t wait to try it again with the correct cut of meat. 

The cucumber salad is so yummy and great for summer, not heavy at all!
