Summer salad, a wonderful combination of flowers, leaf salad, berries and goat’s cheese sprinkled with olive oil and pear vinegar is the weekly special in the Chef’s Handyman recipe blog.
The olive oil ‘Reine Olive No 1’ is a Greek olive oil. The oil has been made of Koroneiki olives. The flavor of these olives is intensive and fruity. This olive oil goes perfect with salad and goat’s cheese.
To get more information about the olive oil, see under: www.reineolive.de
The other new ingredient, I have found is the pear vinegar from Borboletta AG. They sell different types of vinegar. All of them are just great. Check for more information under: www.borboletta.ch
Both products are combined in the cooking recipe below. The fresh fruity flavor is made for this summer salad. Especially when the summer turns to high a light and fresh dish will be very welcome.
