One of my best friends and chef in Jersey is known as the 'brew chef'; he loves working with beers in different and creative ways - here's a salad and dressing recipe of his that rocks!

SPRING SALAD W/ROASTED TOMATO AND PALE ALE VINAIGRETTE

3/4 lb. baby greens, tossed lightly w/dressing
1 red bell pepper,roasted,peeled & sliced
1 cup artichoke hearts, quartered
½ cup sliced toasted almonds
½ cup calamata olives, pitted
4 oz. smoked gouda cheese, diced
½ pint yellow tomatoes
2 cups croutons

Vinaigrette:

6 plum tomatoes, roasted and peeled
1 tsp. roasted garlic puree
1T fresh oregano
1 oz. India Pale Ale
1 oz. sherry vinegar
3 oz. olive oil
½ tsp. salt; black pepper to taste

In a food processor, puree roasted tomatoes, garlic, and oregano; add IPA and vinegar; add oil in a slow steady stream until incorporated and smooth; season with salt and pepper.
Toss greens with dressing, and arrange the rest of the ingredients over the greens.

Tx, Deb - I've had the opportunity to work with some A+ chefs who don't mind sharing recipes and techniques! If you're ever in Morristown, NJ, check out 'Tim Schaffer's Cuisine'; he's awesome!
