DAY16:FRESH SUMMER SALAD WITH A DASH OF SIN
OK , i just want to stop this heat , its so darn hot and humid, my brain is getting COMPLETELY fried, but then we better off in Mumbai ,my friend Gaurav Kapoor in Delhi said that he is feeling like "a piggy on a slow pit fire " ha ha ha
So yup i love my Bombay ,Mumbai whatever you wanna call it, to me its home...
My cousin Penny-Ann who moved to Australia sent me a message asking me to make a salad, so on this hot and humid day , so that's what I'm making...
I know whenever we think of salads , we think ...Oh! My God , I'm dieting , but salads can be a lot of fun , frankly i just put in my favourite leaves my favourite meat and because i dislike heavy dressings and creamy dressings in my salad , i just toss some olive oil and some rock salt , because i love to bite into bits of it while having my salad, peeped into my fridge and found
red and yellow peppers
I very lightly boiled the carrots, baby corn and broccoli and kept it aside to cool.
Then very lightly pan fried a small piece of the salmon and broke up the flakes.
Then diced the tomato,and cucumber and red and yellow peppers.Hand mixed it all in a bowl with a drizzle of olive oil some rock salt and a dash of freshly squeezed orange juice, also tossed in some butter fried garlic for a little drama....
And since i love mashed potatoes, i mashed the potato , added butter and cream to it , with rock salt and chili flakes ....and some good old fashioned bacon ....
Grate 1 carrot really fine and deep fry it and use it as garnish on the mashed potatoes..
And voila you have a lovely" Fresh Summer Salad with a dash of Sin" on the side straight from "Maria's Kitchen.
