Seared Scallop Salad

12 Jun

This is the season for berries. Berries are ripe and prices are right. This salad was quick and easy, and most of all tasty. I used herb and spice infused olive oil. You can always you plain olive oil and pepper.  I used the oil for salad dressing and forcooking.

  • large sea scallops (about 4-5 pr person)
  • 1/4 cup infused olive oil
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • mixed greens
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 of an apple, thinly sliced
  • slivered almonds

Blend the oil and vinegar together. Arrange the greens, fruit and almonds  on serving plates. Brush a skillet with infused oil and heat it over medium high heat. Sear the scallops about 2 minutes on each side or until sides are golden brown. Top the salads with the scallops and drizzle with dressing. Enjoy summer!
