Have you seen spring anywhere?


Just as I suspected, we skipped spring again, winter suddenly turned into summer.
And due to this sudden change of temperature I felt so exhausted for two days that I couldn't get myself over here to write anything.
Today, I prepared this salad and it was so refreshing and tasteful.
Asiago cheese is one of my favourites, soft and tasting like milk and butter, sweet and simply gorgeous.
On the other hand, I love opposite flavors in my salads, so grapefruit was such a wonderful addition.
I highly recommend you try this combination.


Grapefruit, Fennel and Asiago cheese Salad

2 pink grapefruits
1 fennel
1 head of latuce
150 g
Asiago cheese
4 TBspoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
salt, peper

Wash, dry and chop the latuce(I used two types, Red and Green Lollo latuce).
Peel and segment the grapefruits (if you've never done this, here's a VIDEO you may find useful).
Cut the cheese into cubes or sticks.
Clean and slice thinly the fennel.
Layer the ingredients on separate plates or in a large salad bowl. Season with EVOO, salt and pepper.




Insalata di pompelmo, finocchio e asiago

(per 4 persone)
2 pompelmi rosa
1 finocchio
1 mazzetto di insalata verde
150 g di asiago fresco
4 cucchiai di olio extra vergine di oliva
sale e pepe


Lavate a asciugate l'insalata (ho usato la Lollo verde e rossa) e tagliatela finemente.
Pelate a vivo i pompelmi e ricavate dei spicchi privi di pellicina bianca (
VIDEO).
Tagliate il formaggio a cubetti o bastoncini.
Lavate e tagliate il finocchio a fettine sottili.
Componete l'insalata alternando gli ingredienti preparati e condite con olio, un pizzico di sale e pepe macinato al momento.




Salata s grejpom, komoračem i asiagom

2 grejpa (ružičasta)
1 komorač
1 glavica zelene salate
150 g sira
Asiaga
4 žlice maslinovog ulja
sol, papar

Operite, posušite i nasjeckajte zelenu salatu (ja sam stavila dvije vrste, crvena i zelena Lollo salata).
Ogulite grejpove i izvadite kriške bez bijele kožice (pogledajte
VIDEO).
Narežite sir na kockice ili štapiće.
Komorač operite, očistite i narežite na tanke kriškice.
Složite sve sastojke na pojedinačne tanjure ili u veću zdjelu i prelijte maslinovim uljem, posolite i dodajte svježe mljevenog papra po ukusu.

    Bella fresca quest'insalata, anch'io amo molto l'Asiago, specie quello mezzano un po' più stagionato. Un bacio, buon week end
