Blueberries, avocado and halloumi.

Blåbär i en spenatsallad. Det bästa någonsin. I och med att vi inte har några inhemska skogsblåbär att ty oss till än får det duga med buskblåbär. Buskblåbären (de där stora, söta sakerna) är otroligt mjuka till smaken, och passar speciellt bra ihop just med avokado.

Att dessutom vara generös med mängden färsk mynta, dragon och flatbladig persilja bidrar till att skapa något så smakfullt (men ändå fräscht!) att man inte vet vart man skall ta vägen.

Denna blir nog sommarens favorit. Har ni en egen sommarspecialitet?

BLUEBERRIES, SPINACH, HALLOUMI AND AVOCADO SALAD


1 handful of salad leaves
3 handfuls of baby spinach
200 g halloumi cheese, sliced

heaps of fresh mint, tarragon and flat-leaf parsley

1 avocado, sliced
1/2 cantaloupe melon, cubed
1 dl blueberries

Use any dressing you like, I kept it simple with a vinaigrette:

2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar/white wine vinegar/freshly squeezed lemon juice
salt & pepper

  1. Start by whisking together the ingredients for the vinaigrette. Leave the vinaigrette at the bottom of the salad bowl. 
  2. Wash and pat dry the salad and spinach. Add to the bowl.
  3. Also add the avocado, cantaloupe melon and fresh herbs. Mix with the vinaigrette.
  4. Finally, fry the halloumi in a generous splash of oil (or grill it). Place it on the salad. Top with the blueberries. Serve and say ‘my, oh my’.

Tre örtbuskar, halloumi och granatäpple.

Få saker smakar sommar som stekt eller grillad halloumi på en salladsbädd. I denna salladsvariant kombineras flera konsistenser - granatäppelkärnorna, den hyvlade zucchinin, bladverk av alla de slag och så den litet sega, salta halloumin.

Summer salad with HALLOUMI, ZUCCHINI ‘SPAGHETTI’, POMEGRANATE SEEDS and FRESH HERBS

two handfuls of mixed salads
150-200 g halloumi, sliced
1/2 pomegranate
1/2 zucchini, sliced with a cheese slicer (or something similar which makes paper-thin slices) 

mint, basil, flat-leaf parsley

Vinaigrette:
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
a pinch of salt
black pepper 

  1.  First, prepare the dressing. Whisk the oil and the vinegar, add the salt and the pepper. Place at the vinaigrette at the bottom of the salad bowl.
  2. Place the salads in the bowl, along with the sliced zucchini strips. Add the fresh herbs.
  3. Fry or grill the halloumi, a few minutes on each side. Place the halloumi on the salad, top with the pomegranate seeds. Serve with a tabbouleh and some nice bread.

Mango Bay Squid Salad.

Sallader kan kännas förrädiskt lätta att bara svänga ihop. För inget behöver ju kokas eller stekas eller friteras tänker man. 

Det är att lura sig själv, för plötsligt har en timme gått bara på att förbereda alla dessa tandstickstunna ingredienser. Tur att det är så gott att man bara kommer ihåg hur det var att svänga ihop salladssåsen och garnera med de där nötterna och örterna.

VIETNAMESE MANGO & SQUID SALAD WITH A MOUNTAIN OF FRESH HERBS

300 g boiled or fried squid
200 g very thinly sliced green mango
3-4 shallots, finely sliced
100 g very thinly sliced carrots

50-100 g crushed peanuts (according to taste)
5 tbsp crispy, deep fried shallots
1 handful each of fresh coriander, mint and thai basil

Salad dressing:


3 tbsp fish sauce (the best you can find (preferably vietnamese), if you’re planning on using a thai fish sauce: mix 1,5 tbsp with 1,5 tbsp water)
4 tsp lime juice
3 tbsp sugar
1 chili, deseeded and finely sliced
2-3 garlic cloves, crushed

From left: deep fried shallots, crushed peanuts and garlic.

  • Start by preparing the ingredients: cut the green mango, the carrots and the onion. Boil or fry the squid.
  • Now prepare the sauce - this is simple: Mix the ingredients together.

  • Add the squid to a bowl and mix in 1/3 of the sauce. Check the taste.
  • Then add the onion, mango and carrots. Mix in the rest of the sauce.

  • Finally, add the peanuts, crispy shallots and fresh herbs. Mix well and taste. 

  • Arrange on plates and serve with prawn crackers. Yum.

The Book of Jewish Food. Part 1.

Fiskade fram några fina recept från Claudia Rodens The Book of Jewish Food: An Odyssey from Samarkand to New York  som mamma hade i kokbokshyllan. En otrolig kokbok som verkligen levererar. Rodens har gjort ett gediget arbete och har lyckats samla in över 800 recept från hela den judiska världen. Jag plockade främst på mig inspiration från de recept som kom från Nordafrika och Mellanöstern. Nedan en fin marockansk apelsinsallad med oliver. 

Det blir flera receptinlägg också - bland annat en georgisk paprika-valnötsröra, irakiska lammköttbullar i en sås på tomater och aprikoser och en syrisk spenat-valnöts-koriandersallad. Vansinnigt goda grejer. 

MOROCCAN ORANGE & OLIVE SALAD

4 oranges
juice of 0,5-1 lemon
3 tbsp extra-light olive oil or argan oil (I mixed 1 part olive oil and 1 part sunflower oil)
2 garlic cloves, crushed
black olives
cumin

pomegranate seeds
flatleaf parsley/coriander/other inspiring greens 

  1. Peel the oranges and cut them into slices. Place on a plate and dress with mixture of lemon juice, oil, garlic, and salt. 
  2. Top with olives and sprinkle with spices. Garnish with some fresh herbs and pomegranate seeds. Serve as a side dish.

Jewish food on the menu! I found The Book of Jewish Food: An Odyssey from Samarkand to New York  in mom’s kitchen and decided to get to know some of the North African and Middle East Jewish cuisine. Divine.

Munchies.

Ibland svänger man ihop en avokado, färska örter och körsbärstomater till mellanmål och det går precis lika snabbt som att rosta ett bröd. Några generösa skedar olivolja, citron och salt och det blir drägeldrägel.

AFTERNOON MUNCHIES for everyone tired of always eating bread

avocado 
tomatoes 
basil 
olive oil 
freshly squeezed lemon juice
salt

  1. Cut the avocado and the tomatoes into bite-size pieces. 
  2. Mix the olive oil, salt and lemon juice with a fork and drizzle on the rest. Top with a generous amount of basil. Mix & serve!
