Beetroot, but not the Swedish one that's smothered in mayo.

I make a salad many times a week. We love eating lots of salad, at the end of the meal. It's somehow very satisfying and cleansing at the same time. The Italians eat salads at the end of the meal. They know how to eat!

Anyway I'm happy to share what I made last night. I made a salad with romaine lettuce, arugula, frisee, and these radishes that are red inside. Dressing was olive oil, salt and pepper, lemon and a few does of apple cider vinegar.

epicurious.com is a great site for recipes in general.

One of my faves is grilled asparagus, baby arugula (rocket for you Brits), lemon, olive oil, dijon mustard, finely chopped shallots... top it with curls of parmigiana cheese.

My ceasar salad is also famous smile.gif ... great topped with grilled lox.

Okay another truly great salad but you need great tomatoes to make it.

A variety of freshly sliced tomatoes (heirloom) arranged on a plate, fresh chopped basil, coarse sea salt, drizzle with the best olive oil you can find and add a few tablespoons >8 year old balsamic vinegar around the edge of the plate. Top with curls of parma cheese.

If you can't buy fantastic balsamic (it should taste sweet and be thick), take the best you can find and boil it down to at least half.

Try something like:

o chopped lettuce
o tomato
o olives
o diced onion
o chopped feta cheese
o chopped pickle
o carrot strands
o olive oil
o sliced avocado
o ground cashew nuts
o oregano or tumeric

and a side of Swedish meatballs

I didn't know rödbetssallad had mayo in it. I like it. smile.gif


It might not. That was just a guess. It has something creamy in it that makes it go pink and I'm not too keen on it. More creamy pink stuff than beetroot. I prefer this type:

Streja... thanks for the correction... I make this mistake because we have something called lox LOX that is also salmon. Served on a fresh Montreal style bagel... a thing of beauty.

All this talk of food I guess I should go have breakfast. biggrin.gif

American-style potato salad. That white stuff in containers labeled "Potatissallad" is not my idea of potato salad. I'm not saying I dislike Swedish potatissallad. I just prefer the kind I grew up with.

In fact, I'm making a batch right now.

I have to say in defense, that the cr*p they sell in stores, here in the US, is NOT
potato salad as I know it. I'm not sure who eats it, but I wouldn't. I make potato salad with boiled potatos, diced, hard boiled eggs, diced, kosher dill pickles, diced, and fresh Walla Walla sweet onion, or for you southeners, Rosalia onion. Then I add mayonnaise, dash of spicy mustard, dill, paprika (just a dash) salt and pepper to taste, let it chill. YUMMM.

I also like a salad that starts with fresh Romaine lettuce, Arugula, and spinach. Add candied walnuts, crumbled goats milk cheese, cherry tomatos, sliced red onion, and a raspberry vinaigrette. Toss and serve! rolleyes.gif

I don't find this thread boring at all- however, I like salad. Do you add celery to your potato salad? Therein lies the only difference I can see between your recipe and mine.
