Summer Salad

Our beautiful summer is here to stay for a while and yesterday evening was perfect for a wonderful crisp salad.

As you can see from the recipe I did not write down any of the vegetables amounts used to put the salad together. Everyone taste is different when it comes to Belgian endives and radicchio, therefore  I left it up to you to use as much as you want or as little as you wish.

Vanilla ice cream with strawberries was our dessert.

Bon Appetit!!

Tonight’s May 22, 2012 dinner:

Prawns Summer Salad

Vanilla Ice Cream with Strawberries




Prawns already cooked and tail removed
Belgian Endive, cleaned and sliced
Radicchio, cleaned and sliced
Tomatoes,  sliced and seed removed
Cucumber, outer skin removed and sliced thinly
Carrots, shredded
Green leaf salad, torn in small pieces
3 tablespoon Oliver oil
1 tablespoon Lemon juice or vinegar

Remove the tail from the prawns.  In a large bowl add the olive oil, lemon juice or vinegar and salt.  Mix well.  Add the remainder ingredients and mix well gently.
Serve on chilled plates.

  1. Salad sounds yummy.. I’m starting a table for twelve soon, hoping to serve gourmet food… five course meals, so if you have any more interesting recipes to share I’d be more than glad!!

    • I would suggesting Bruschetta with a chilled glass of Champagne. Folowed by Fillet of Beef with a Gorgonzola sauce, roasted rosemary potatoes. Roasted carrots or tomatoes, steamed broccolis with Garlic olive oil.
      If you choose fish: Kiwi shrimp cocktail, salmon with mushroom cream-wine-basil sauce, mashed potatoes, and ginger carrots.
      For dessert I would go simple, eiter affogato or fresh fruit cocktail over vanilla ice cream. For adults may I suggest a dash of scotch or burbon or whisky over the ice cream and the fruit. I will go over well and it is the perfect ending to a faboulous evening. Let me know if you cannot found the recipes on my blog and I will be more than happy to send them to you.
      Enjoy the night and keep us posted and thank you so much for reading my blog.
