Childhood salad

There some dishes that make me feel back into my childhood. It comes either from their fragrance or from their ingredients. This salad in particular is one my mother used to do from time to time. I learned it from her. As some other dishes that she used to do and that I try to reproduce, I can feel back at least 20…30 (déjà!) ago. So I do them from time to time, thinking about the different houses, cities we lived in, family moments we all shared. Time flies! And I am pleased to think that maybe Jack or Joséphine might reproduce some dishes of their childhood. After all my blog (my third child) is gonna be a good record for them, not only for the recipes but also for the moments, the little privacy, stories about these two little parts of me (my kids) and this blog I dare to share with all of you.

Salad of beetroot, walnuts and apples

  • 100 g lamb’s lettuce cleaned
  • 200 g cooked beetroot, peeled and cubed
  • 50g walnuts peeled
  • 1 green apple (Granny Smith) peeled and cubed
  • Salt and pepper
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. balsamic vinegar

In a bowl combine the lettuce, chopped walnuts, beets and apples. Add salt and pepper. Add olive oil and vinegar. Mix

This salad can be eaten with another dish or as main course for which you can add cheese, bacon, or smoked salmon or shrimps.

Salade de betteraves, noix et pommes

Cette salade peut se manger comme acompagnement d’un autre plat, ou comme plat unique pour lequel on peut ajouter du fromage, ou des lardons fumés cuits, ou du saumon fumé ou des crevettes.

    Quelle bonne idée!! La semaine dernière, j’ai fait une salade avec des betteraves râpées, de la poire et de la feta (recette originale de Jamie Oliver); il me reste qqs betteraves crues et je ne savais pas trop qu’en faire: pb résolu!! Merci Laure-Sophie. Bises

  • Che bell’insalata! :) Mi piace l’uso di barbabietole (non ho molte ricette per cucinarle) e l’accostamento particolare!
    Ho trovato il tuo sito tramite quello di Edda, e mi piace tanto! Anch’io ho un blog bilingue (vivo e cucino in Italia, ma sono finlandese), quindi apprezzo davvero tanto gli altri che sono abbastanza pazzi per scrivere in due (o più!!) lingue!! ;D
    Come già detto, questo sito mi piace tanto, tornerò sicuramente spesso!! :)
