Grilled Kielbasa and Warm Mustard Vinaigrette Salad #SundaySupper

Yum
In the summer a salad always feels like the right choice.  The lettuces from the salad bowl are fresh and tasty, the grill beckons, and all works synergistically to make the perfect meal.  Could be that I made up "synergistically."  I hope you know what I mean.

Grilled Kielbasa and Warm Mustard Vinaigrette Salad

My husband and I are big fans of the humble kielbasa. We buy one that is precooked, and will snack on it with some favorite cheese, grill it in a kabob, or slice and panfry it to serve with a hearty pasta.  It is versatile and tasty and quick.

Grilled Kielbasa and Warm Mustard Vinaigrette Salad


This salad almost makes the kielbasa seem.... elegant.  Not a word generally associated with this protein. However, the bite sized pieces, the lovely greens and the vinaigrette combine to make a beautiful dish.  What do you think? Would you serve this to your friends or is this just a family meal?

Grilled Keilbasa and Warm Mustard Vinaigrette Salad

4 c mixed spring greens
1 pkg turkey keilbasa
1/4 c parmesan shavings
1/2 c white cannelli beans, drained and rinsed
2 T red wine vinegar
2 T whole grain mustard
2 T extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper

Wash the spring greens. Lay on paper towels to dry. Separate greens onto two plates. Sprinkle cheese over the greens.  Sprinkle beans over the cheese.  Heat the grill to medium. When grill is hot, place whole kielbasa on the grill. Grill until kielbasa is heated all the way through and grill marks are on the meat. Remove from heat and rest five minutes.  In a small jar, add red wine vinegar, mustard, olive oil and 1/4 t salt and 1/4 t pepper. Cover with lid and shake until blended. Remove lid and microwave for 30 seconds, stirring after every ten seconds. Pour the warmed dressing over the salad. Slice the kielbasa and lay on top of the salad.  Serve with crusty bread to sop up the dressing.
