Fact: programmers are one of the laziest creatures on earth and when it comes to ruby programmers, like me, the problem is even worse. We don´t like to spend more than 5 minutes cooking something while we could be doing something more important like chatting with your friends on freenode.
After spending more time than I wanted in the kitchen, I came with this recipe that is easily modifiable and IMHO it´s delicious and nutritive. So, here´s what you need:
- olives, I´m using french style olives, but you can use any other one
- balsamic vinegar, preferably an original one from Modena, Italy
- a good quality extra virgin olive oil
- cheese, you can choose, but I strongly recommend using goat cheese, camembert or brie
- cherry tomatoes
- vegetables, I´m using lettuce and its variants, but you can put any other vegetable you like
First, start slicing the vegetables in way you can eat without cutting them.
Then pour honey over the vegetables like drawing lines. Be careful not to add too much honey otherwise will be more a dessert rather than a salad.
Cut the cheese in cubes and add it over the salad. As I´m using goat cheese which is a little bit too strong for my taste, I added less cheese and due to its form factor, I´m using slices of it
Now you add about 1.5 level tablespoons (15ml) of balsamic vinegar over the salad.
The lasts steps are no mistery: you add olives, cherry tomatoes, dress the salad with the extra virgin olive oil and that´s pretty much of it.
Now the best part: you can try your very new salad ! Bon Appétit
Just in case you´re wondering about which olive oil and balsamic vinegar I used, here are them:
Venta Barón, from Spain
Ponti, from Italy
