Although I have never been to the Mediterranean or have never eaten mediterranean dish but I came up with this recipe after the quarantine started and just named Mediterranean Salad and my family loves it! I always dream to travel there and we say we can travel to the Mediterranean during lunchtime using our imagination while eating this fresh summer salad. Looking at my family's smiles makes me so happy and thankful.
To me, the very first signs of summer are the bright yellow faces of the dandelions springing up everywhere. What better way to celebrate summer in a salad than by tossing some of their tasty greens with salty bacon and a hot, salty vinaigrette. The greens are bitter, so if you don't like bitter, you may want to add a little sugar to the dressing.
This is a recipe known only to people from my small community in the state of Maharashtra in India. Such recipes, using coconut and mangoes are specific to the western coastal belt of India, especially Maharashtra because of the abundance of these fruits. During Spring, raw mangoes start appearing in the markets and a countless dishes are made from these tangy treats. One of these is a salad prepared using fresh coconut, raw mango and raw chickpeas soaked in water to soften them. All of this is ground together with chillies and tempered with spices. Garnished with salt, sugar and fresh coriander, this is a unique and unknown savoury salad which I can eat in bucketfuls!
I was inspired by the bounty of fresh produce that I can find at my local Farmers Market. Add in some pantry staples and you have a wonderful and flavorful summer bounty salad. You can swap out the protein for tofu and have a totally vegetarian meal.
