This is summer time! We are wearing flip flops, buying ice crams, spending time outdoors and comparing suntan. When the heat is pouring down from the sky nobody wants to eat heavy. My favourite way to eat and cool down is this mega tasty Spanish classic:
2 small cucumbers
1 red pepper
clove of garlic
1 tbsp white vine vinegar
0.5 tbsp lemon juice
0.5 cup olive oil
Peel off tomatoes and chop cucumber, pepper and garlic. You can leave some cubes of tomatoes and cucumber for decoration. Mix all in a blender till smooth, keep on blending and slowly add vinegar , olive oil and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper, cool down in a fridge for 30 mins.
An option is to add some crumbled bread or baguette to the mixture, it’ll get more thick but I like to keep it light . They serve it with a grilled baguette. Once I got an idea to grill a baguette topped with some butter mixed with fresh bitter-cress (I have never seen it in a shop so I just plant it and this vital herb is growing within a week) and garlic salt.
