A quick hello plus a salad so colorful and bright as the sun that is deflecting me right now from writing a longer post. As much as I am in love with whole foods – I am also in love with picnic-compatible food that just screams ‘summer’ when you look at it!
As the tomatoes get more juicy&sweet and herbs come out of their winter sleep, we can appraise them with this rainbow salad. A light, crunchy and flavourful creation reminding me slightly of a fresh turkish dish.
Grab a friend, your bikes, a lunch box + salad and enjoy it all together on a picnic blanket.
Rainbow Tomato Salad
+ Millet ( couscous would work here too)
makes a huge bowl / 4 Persons
1 cup Millet + 2 cups water
2 handful wild tomatoes ( green, yellow, orange, red – go crazy)
1 red bell pepper
1 cup fresh parsley
1 handful mint leaves
1 stalk spring onion
a few leaves fresh coriander
4 Tbsp Tomato paste
2 Tbsp Ajvar
1/2 cup water
1 clove garlic
1 tsp ground Cumin
1 tsp ground caraway
salt & pepper
Cook the millet in water for 5 minutes, let it simmer for another 5-10 minutes on low heat. Let it cool in a large bowl.
Cut onion and garlic really petite – gently roast them in a pan. Add the other sauce ingredients. Mix it with millet.
Chop all the fresh vegetables and herbs into tiny cubes. Add them to the bowl, stir carefully.
