I stopped for a while my herbal series to share with you this wonderful moment that we spent in family.
I think that I more and more, like the lifestyle that the Argentines had.
As usual here good weather (or not) means lunch or dinner out door if you had a green in your backyard. Is common to do it and I really appreciate this, is relaxing and makes you feel in vacation
This week end my husband and me, feeling the pleasant summer evening breeze we plan in this moment in put some chicken and sausages in the barbecue.
I love summer days because of this, less work for me. We spent a lot of time out of the house and I just prepare the drinks and salad, in this day I made strawberry daiquiris and Caesar Salad.
For the Caesar Salad I used:
1 or 2 cloves garlic (we love garlic, so, if you don’t be a garlic addict just use one clove) minced
2 tablespoon mayonnaise
2 tablespoon milk or cream (I prefer milk)
2 or 3 anchovies, drained
Salt, but be careful the anchovies and the mayonnaise are salted too, then I didn’t use
Your favorite lettuce
Ground black pepper
In a blender or in a mortar mix well all ingredients
Put over the salad with baked croutons made with bread cut in squares and toss with olive oil. Spread bread cubes out on a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes, stirring several times, until golden brown.
Sprinkle the salad with parmesan cheese
For the Strawberries Daiquiris I used
Juice of 2 limes or lemons
2 tablespoon of icing sugar
125ml of white rum
Dash of strawberry liqueur
Dash of pomegranate syrup
Approximately 250ml of crushed ice
In a blender, add all of the above ingredients until they are nice and frothy. Pour into a daiquiri glass (preferably enormous) and share with your friends or in a romantic night with your husband like me!
