Thanks very much for posting ...
To begin with: I would definitely go French here. French baguette or French style Baguette for the Croutons and French Raclette Cheese ... Then, if we were still hungry I would go with:
Green Asparagus Salad with hazelnuts and tarragon Vinaigrette ( which provides a vegetable and complete meal with the French Onion Soup ):
1 pound green fresh asparagus trimmed
1/4 cup scallion or spring onion or shallot
3 tblsp Tarragon Vinegar
7 tblps Evoo
4 cups baby lettuces / curly varieites and 1 which is magenta serrated
1/4 cup hazel nuts husked, toasted and coarsely chopped
For the Vet: a broccoli quiche and his French onion soup ...
