LAMBS LETTUCE SALAD; TOASTS WITH GARLIC AND PEPPER MAYONNAISE
LAMBS LETTUCE SALAD
- Ingredients: 4 leaves of lettuce chopped in julienne; a handful of lambs lettuce; 4 cherry tomatos chopped in half; a small slice of cucumber chopped in sticks; 2 spoons of walnuts, crushed roughly with the hands; 2 spoons of olive oil; 1 spoon of balsamic vinegar (I'm using the Balsamic Vinegar di Modena, which is very soft and was bought at ALDI for only 99 p); herbs salt (this is the one I've been using for years and I do prefer it to regular salt; it's possible to buy it both in Portugal and UK, but not in regular supermarkets);
- Dressing: Put the ingredients in a bowl. Season with the herbs salt and pour the olive oil and the balsamic vinegar. Mix well the ingredients and serve in a plate with 2 slices of toasted.
TOASTS WITH GARLIC MAYONNAISE
- Ingredients: 2 slices of Polish bread toasted (on sale on Polish stores); 4/5 spoons of light mayonaise; 1 garlic clove finely chopped; 1 baby orange pepper; 1 small mature tomato; balsamic vinegar
- Cooking & Seasoning: Cut both the tomato and the pepper into 2 halves and grill them with a sprinkle of balsamic vinegar. When cold, chop them finely and mix them with the mayonnaise in a small bowl. Add the garlic and batter it with a tea spoon until it gets a smooth consistency. Put in the fridge until serving time.
