Happy Palm Sunday!!!
I hope you are having a great one.
This is the appetizer that didn't make it to the table because it was eaten rather quickly at the breakfast bar just as soon as it was brought in from the grill. The dressing is supposed to he drizzled on, but a helper poured it on, so I had to make more dressing for the salad :/
Grilled Bacon-wrapped Scallops
One doezen scallops
Six slices bacon
Four bamboo skewers
Citrus champagne vinaigrette (see recipe below)
1. Slice bacon in half. Wrap each scallop with a bacon half and place on a skewer. You should have three scallops per skewer.
2. Grill over hot coals for four minutes per side.
3. Drizzle with vinaigrette.

That's my "didn't quite make it to the table" story, and here's another table story via Anthropologie:
Until next time...
