The perfect side dish for greasy meals! Yesterday, I cooked steak and I could not think of any side dish so I looked for recipes online. This was the third recipe that I read. I got so excited just by reading the ingredients so I made it. I am so glad that I did because it’s perfect to go with the steak. A lot of things are happening in your mouth all at once!



¾ cup extra virgin olive oil

⅔ cup red wine vinegar

1 clove garlic, chopped

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

¼ cup grated Asiago cheese

3 tablespoons chopped olives


3 tablespoons sliced roasted red peppers

½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

¼ teaspoon salt


Step 1: In a medium mixing bowl, add vinegar, garlic, Dijon mustard, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Whisk until well mixed.
