Coleslaw

Hello,

On my previous recipes (Cocido montañés) it remained  half cabbage and I was thinking about what to do with it, until it came to my mind the coleslaw served on some buffet restaurants, so I investigated a bit and test the recipe I bring to you today:

Ingredients:

  • Half cabbage
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 medium onion or 2 small
  • 1 apple
  • 1 lemon
  • Mayonnaise
  • Mustard
  • Optionally some sugar

It will be better if you have a mandolin to cut ingredients, if not cut first onto strips half cabbage, then turn the strips and cut again so you will get thick and long strips. Cut one medium onion or two small the same way you cut first the half cabbage. It should be nice to cut 2 carrots in thick sticks, I found the way to do it cutting first thick sheets with a potato peeler and then cutting with a knife, but if you don’t have time or patience you can just grate the 2 carrots. Finally grate an apple.

On a big bowl add the cabbage, the onion, the carrot, the apple, the juice of one lemon and optionally a tablespoon of sugar. Finally prepare a sauce with 3 tablespoons of mayonnaise, between 1 and 2 tablespoons of mustard, and you can also add a bit of soy sauce. Mix well and then add to the bowl.

Now just mix everything in the bowl and also compress it. Cover with transparent film and let rest one night in the fridge. Remove from fridge at least half hour before serving.

Shepherd’s salad

Hello,

This a recipe typical from Turkey, it’s a really nice recipe for those of you bringing a tupperware to your work, and it’s also great for summer.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cucumber
  • 2 tomates
  • 1 spring onion
  • 1 lemon
  • A bunch of parsley
  • Olive oil

Start rolling a bunch of parsley like you were rolling a cigar, and then chop it. Peel the cucumber but maintain a bit of the skin which will bring a more colorful salad. As we need to cut the cucumber in cubes, first we will cut onto slices, then pile up slices and cut onto stripes, then cut the stripes to form cubes. Chop a spring onion. Cut 2 tomatoes on cubes, first cut in half, cut in 4 the part with the peduncle, remove the peduncle and try to cut in cubes; cut the other part onto stripes turn 90 degrees and cut again onto stripe so you will have cubes.

Add the tomatoes, spring onion and cucumber on a bowl and add the chopped parsley. Add salt, the juice of one lemon and olive oil. Give it a good mix, and let rest for some time.
