Potato salad

Potato salad

We start by peeling and boiling the potatoes. Because I get home quite late, I chose to boil them cut directly into cubes, but you, if you have more time, you can bake them or boil them in their skins.

We cleaned the red beets from the jar or boiled them in the peel and cut them into thin strips.

Cut the onion into cubes.

Mushrooms cleaned well, not to have soil, we slice them.

The spinach must also be washed very well, leaf by leaf and let it drain.

In a hot pan, put the mushrooms and sprinkle salt on them, in a few minutes they will start to leave water and cook. We leave them on the fire until the water left by them decreases. We take them out of the pan, in a bowl.

In the same pan, without washing it, put the spinach leaves and let them soften a little. We take them out in a bowl.

Put oil in the pan and heat the onion. When the onion is soft, add the smoked paprika and the boiled potatoes. Season with salt and black pepper and mix.

In a salad bowl, put the sliced ​​beets, enough to cover the bottom of the bowl. We put the potatoes on it, then the spinach and the mushrooms.

On top, I put pieces of beets.

Quick salad of potatoes and peas

Since having babies in our house, everything goes fast. I became a specialist in two things: 1. Quick and ultra fast recipes and 2. Invented quick and ultra-fast recipes with whatever the heck is in the pantry or refrigerator. Honey always tells me I'm the magician of the fridge, but lately even I am amazed by my performances. One of the tastiest recipes lately is a potato and pea salad, ready in a maximum of 30 minutes.

I don't know about you, but I always have peas and dill in the freezer and potatoes and onions in the pantry. I also put in this combination an egg yolk and some capers forgotten in the fridge and there it is: dinner.

Here's how the operation went:

1. Preheated oven to 200C with ventilation.

2. Wash about 800 g small potatoes, cut in half, throw in the pan, slam in the oven, pac!

3. Peeled 1/2 onion, cut noodles, throw in the bowl XL to host the salad. Harsc and capers over, harsc mararu & # 8217 from congi.

4. Put the water in the kettle and boil. Boil in 2 minutes, pour over 300 g of peas from the freezer, let it thaw for 10 minutes then drain the water and pour into the bowl with the rest.

5. Mayo baby! I had a fainted boiled egg for breakfast, I took out the yolk and I threw the egg white in the salad. In a bowl I rubbed the yolk with 1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard and a pinch of salt. When it thickened a little, I added a little sunflower oil. I rubbed more, I added more oil and so on. Not much, in the eyes. In the end I wanted to add the juice from 1/2 lemon but I didn't have it, so I put orange. And pepper. Went.

(If you want to step on mayonnaise, cream an avocado with lemon juice and replace)

In the meantime, the potatoes were made, that is, about 20 minutes in total. I quickly threw everything in the bowl, mixed with mayonnaise and a warm and super nutritious delicacy came out. I ate three hungry adults out of it and there was NOTHING left!

I also had some leurda in the fridge and it would have gone over, but I had a restraint based on the fact that I didn't want to kill the pediatrician I had a meeting with during the day :) Speaking of which: today Sami cried At the vaccine, white hairs came out of my head. How do you moms handle these situations? That I don't want his tears to dry on my cheeks anymore, it's heartbreaking and I know that's how children cry, but still?

  • 2 red onions, medium size

  • 1 tablespoon drained capers (optional)
  • 5 & ​​# 8211 6 tablespoons oil
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice
  • 1 link green & # 8211 I used finely chopped black dill, freshly ground

Oriental salad, simple fasting recipe, preparation

1. Peeled potatoes, well washed, put whole in a large pot, covered with water. Boil the potatoes for about 20 minutes. Check if they are ready, lightly sticking a fork in the largest potato. If that one is cooked, of course the other smaller ones are ready. Drain the potatoes and allow to cool slightly.

2. While the potatoes are boiling, peel the onions and cut into thin scales. Put the onion in the bowl in which we intend to make the salad, add salt and mix a little. Set the onion aside while we take care of the rest of the ingredients. During this time, the salt will extract the water from the onion and it will soften a little.

3. The potatoes are still too hot to touch, so we still have time to thinly slice the pickles and finely chop the greens.

Oriental salad, simple fasting recipe, assembly and seasoning

1. When the potatoes have cooled so much that we can touch them, without being completely cold, peel them, which will come off very easily, like a skin. With a vegetable knife, lightly scrape off any imperfections on the potatoes & # 8211 stains or blackheads & # 8211 and then cut the potatoes into quarters, lengthwise. If there are larger potatoes, cut the four quarters once more, transversely.

2. Place the chopped potatoes in a bowl over the onion. Beat with a fork or mix in a closed bottle / jar, stirring, the oil with vinegar or lemon juice. Pour this dressing over the potatoes. Add the spices in this phase, because they will mix better in the salad, so now we will add salt and pepper to taste.

3. With a wooden spoon, mix the potatoes and onions. Stir carefully so as not to crush them, using wide, rotating movements from the base of the bowl upwards. It is important that each piece is dressed in oil with vinegar or lemon, also to reach each salt and pepper, so as not to discover fading pieces in our salad.

4. Now add the rest of the ingredients. As a pickle, I put thinly sliced ​​pickled cucumbers and half a raw, thinly sliced ​​donut, because I had it at hand. Then I added olives, capers and a tablespoon of vinegar. I stirred again carefully, so as not to crush the potatoes. If you use eggs, now is the time to add them after you have sliced ​​them beforehand.

5. Leave the oriental salad for a quarter of an hour, to set the flavors and tastes, after which it can be served.
