the summer I just had turned 20 many summer nights were spent drinking bubbles in the kitchen of my friend anna. she introduced me to the world of golden sparkly and i got stuck. dry and with strawberries is a favorite.
i also have a love for fruits in salads. not fruit salad. but adding a fruit to your cooking. it gives a great contrast. the sweet with the savory. and why not pick strawberries? late lunch = light dinner.
this serves one one not so hungry person.
handfull red chard, washed and dried
3-4 leaves roman salad, washed, dried and ripped
handfull small strawberries, washed and sliced
60 g chèvre (or other goat’s cheese)
1/2 hazelnuts, toasted and roughly chopped
a couple of leaves thai basil (i had som left from yesterday and it gives the salad a nice twist!)
crema di balsamico
pinch of sea salt
on a plate (serving plate if making for many) combine greens and strawberries. add cheese, nuts and basil on top. drizzle some honey and plenty of olive oil and balsamico over the salad and finish of with salt and pepper. this is delicious on it’s own as a vegetarian, light meal. but if you are in need of proteins and don’t back off red meat i would suggest glazed and barbecued lamb racks to go with the salad. i’ll try that next time.
