Watermelon radishes are the star of this creamy jewel toned salad. Colorful radishes, the jewel of the root vegetables, are accompanied by individual "gems" from pomegranates and ojia pixi wedges. Combined with the silky smooth texture of butter lettuce and mildly sweet dressing, this colorful salad pairs well with fish or poultry.
This is the recipe for beet salad the way my parents made it. In autumn they would harvest the huge bed of beets in the garden, and then a big production would ensue. Boiling dozens of beets, first peeling and then grating them until we had a big laundry bin of salad, ready to be filled into canning jars. After all the hard work we had a big shelf full of shiny, canning jars filled with beet salad. During the winter months right into spring this was the go to on the days my mom was short on time. Mashed potatoes, eggs sunnyside up and a jar of beet salad and we were set and satisfied. Nowadays I don‘t boil 50 kgs of beets, but I still love this salad. I boil only 1 or 2 kgs beets and we eat the salad fresh, but it is a recurring item on our table.
And it is no mistake, that there is no oil listed in the ingredients. There is truly only salt, cumin and vinegar. Beets have an oily quality, when they are cooked. Adding oil would not only be superfluous, but cause an unpleasantly greasy mouthfeel. So, only salt and vinegar and don‘t be shy with them. The cumin can be a bit much, if you don‘t break it down. You can do this either by cutting it finely with a big knife, or pestle it together with the salt before adding it to the salad.
Named for the island of Capri, this classic Italian salad is as summery as it gets. Juicy ripe tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and fresh basil leaves are the three main ingredients. Thinly sliced red onions are a wonderful addition, but optional. Layer on a platter, sprinkle with salt & pepper, drizzle olive oil and balsamic vinegar on top. Serve with crusty bread.
Summer is all about staying fresh and cool during those hot sunny days. The salad I enjoy during a proper heatwave is a vegan version of a greek salad, with simple but delicious ingredients, when they are all combined in a salad bowl. All that is needed is a bit of salt, olive oil, sun-kissed tomato, a team of little black olives, red onion and cool cucumber. To make the salad taste even better, eat it out with your friends, while the sun shines!
Nothing screams like summer as much as watermelons do! You add feta and olive oil and you think you are in Greece. Mint gives the freshness and lemon/lime juice twist. Let's celebrate sunshine and sunny days and let's make this deliciousness over and over again!
