My 8-Flavors Salad

It’s still summer time!!

So before watching pumpkins and cabbages grow in our grocery stores, let’s enjoy a bit more the seasonal vegetables!!

Here is my 8-flavors salad!!

Since my 8-flavors sald is very simple (it is just a salad after all!!), I won’t make a long speech…

But I will still underline a fact or two…

Why is this salad different form your usual ones? Because…

– The dressing is made with yuzu olive oil, and that gives an incredible taste! Without burning your mouth 😉 since I also put flower honey in it…

– You will have raw veggies (obviously!!) and cooked ones. Perfect for a nice and easy digestion and also a little diet if you need one!!

– I added roasted nectarine. I love this light sweet touch that echoes with the honey used in the dressing.

I admit, when you give a look at the ingredients list, you will notice more than 8 flavors, but who’s counting??!! 😉

There you go! And if you are not convinced at this point, you will surely agree that it’s at least a good looking salad?

It will be perfect as a side dish for duck breasts or any meat cooked with your barbecue!

The utensils:

A small frying pan with antiadhesive (I chose the smallest of the Affinity range by De Buyer)

A sharp knife

And a small bowl.

Okay, let’s move to the next step!

The recipe, Chef!

    The nectarine is a great idea! I often add apple and pear into my salads.
