Nibbly little thing for lunch
Lately I was asked if I only cook dinner meals, since I constantly think what to eat for any of my meals. I’m posting something for lunch, that I got the idea for by standing in the store in front of a cooler full of different kind of cheeses…. It‘s a small and tasty salad with blue cheese – Cookies doesn’t even want to try it 0_o, he says: “I ain’t eatin’ that moldy shit, Woman!” (I love it when he tries to use a southern accent 0_o). He just simply doesn’t know what he is missing… Blue cheese mostly is delicate in flavour and adds some nice bite to the delicate lettuces and mix of tomatoes. Yesterday I was able to buy a nice mix of cherry, strawberry and heart tomatoes that are different shapes and colors, and these are what made the salad look just pretty ;-). With an ingredient like blue cheese, the salad doesn’t need fancy dressing – so I made just a classic vinaigrette.
As usual, “if you ain’t eatin’ that moldy shit” 😉 you can just add cubes of cheddar or any other sharp flavour cheese or even chorizo or salami.
Ingredients for 1 😉
50g (almost 2 oz) blue cheese
2 handfuls mix of lettuce
½ red onion
handful mixed tomatoes
handful seedless grapes
3 tbsp oil
2 tsp apple (or white wine) vinegar
1 tbsp dijon mustard (any yellow will do)
pinch of fructose (or sugar)
salt and pepper to taste
Arrange lettuce on the plate, cut cheese into small cubes, tomatoes, grapes cut in half and onion into feather like pieces and then layer all of the ingredients up on the lettuce. Easy, huh?
Add the ingredients for the dressing to a jar and shake thoroughly until it starts to emulsify. Pour dressing on top of the salad and serve after 5 minutes rest. If you like, pour yourself nice glass of favourite wine and enjoy a few minutes of pleasure 😉
Until next time, take care of yourself and each other.
P.S. Madzia – no parsley this time 0_o but I’m still going to use your comment 😉
