Salads and other vegetable dishes
Although we associate them more with the good weather and the warmth of spring and summer, freshest salads and dishes and light ones in which vegetables are the main protagonists are always a good choice. Especially at dinner time. With these recipes it is easy to avoid monotony without great complications.
A good trick to always make complete, healthy salads, but satiating enough not to leave us hungry, is to follow the 1-2-3-4 formula: a cup of protein, two tablespoons of something crunchy, three different types of vegetables and four cups of leaves.
It is a rule that some of the great compound salads follow, more or less, such as the Waldorf salad, whose full recipe we leave you below.
We will start by lightly toasting the nuts in a pan. When a few minutes pass and we see them toasted, we reserve them while they cool and we break them into large pieces. To make the mayonnaise, put the egg yolk in a bowl, add salt and begin to beat with a whisk or the rods of a mixer, incorporating the oil in a thin stream so that the emulsion is made. Add the vinegar and keep cold. Peel and cut the apples into dadao or sticks, the celery into small pieces and wash and spin the lettuce. Next, in a salad bowl, put the celery, the apple, half the walnuts and the raisins, add the mayonnaise to taste and mix well. In the serving dish we put a bed of chopped lettuce, above the mixture of celery, apple, nuts and raisins with mayonnaise, and finally decorate with the rest of the nuts. Serve quickly.
