I like playing with my food so made this salad with ingredients traditionally used in Italy and made it in the style of the Italian Flag. I made a Polish flag salad which had balanced flavors of a cottage cheese salad with pickled beets which was pleasant. While this might be another clever idea for a salad, it is defiantly not for wimps.
sliced Romaine and Iceberg lettuce.
1 cup cottage cheese with 1 small diced onion and celery stalk
Three marinated artichoke hearts on top of the salad
crumbled Gorgonzola sprinkled on top
3 oz tuna fish
½ teaspoon horseradish
½ teaspoon crushed garlic
½ Tablespoon soy sauce
Mix all ingredients until well blended
Overlay with red pimento
I loved the flavor of this bold tuna salad so I expect you will see more of that as a protein source with vegetarian soups for dinner. I served the red and green parts of the salad with marinated artichoke hearts and black olives to some of our family friends at my daughter’s house and was worried about overdoing it with bold flavors. Everybody loved it and several asked for recipes.
My daughter and I cook bold for ourselves, our families and our friends and they keep coming back for more so I guess we are doing OK.
