FUCT's Delight: Lamb's lettuce with melon, sheep's cheese and thyme dressing
D iesen salad, the man has served me last week on the eve of my birthday. First he rustled suspiciously in the kitchen and rumbled and then he came with dinner on the tray scratched around the corner.
Nice it was cozy on the balcony with a delicious neck chop and a very cool glass of champagne , And with a real additional blast: Volunteer fruit in the salad. Oh no - actually vegetables: The watermelon, which was there to my great surprise harmoniously with lamb's lettuce and sheep's cheese in my bowl rummaged, namely officially belongs to the cucurbits. But it does not matter. Melon will remain fruit for us. And she's delicious, awesome, just awesome in that salad!
At some point I finally managed to scare the man off, how the hell on the world did he get the idea of making that salad. Quite surprising in his aversion to fruit in the food. He read the recipe in a post by Emmelie Brunetti on The Heavy Mental. If the wife of Erik Brunetti and co-founder of the label FUCT serves this salad with great success to their family and friends, the man thought, then I really like him. A very interesting train of thought ...
Insanely refreshing, spicy, crisp with a hint of chili and thyme. That's what summer tastes like, my dear ones!
