Sunday dinner

I made a wonderful dinner tonight and I thought I’d share it. The recipe is called “string beans, pickled beans, tomatoes, and olives on Tonnato”. It is from the Six Seasons cookbook. It has started to get hot and we have at least two weeks coming up of very hot weather so salads are nice.

I read the recipe a few weeks ago and made a jar of pickled beans. They’ve been curing in the refrigerator for a while and I thought they were ready. I added a few things, like endives for crunch, and a soft boiled egg. The description of the recipe said it had evolved from the Salade niçoise. The egg added a little more umph so it wasn’t “just a salad”. The tonnato sauce underneath the salad was great and you could get some with each forkful. It was quite filling. I’d make this one again.

🌈 mask up everyone! 💕

    Hi Carlo, we love anything with an egg on it.😊 This cookbook has even taught me how to soft boil an egg right! Tonnato sauce is one of Luthers favorite things. Plus this was cool for these hot days. Always a consideration!

    Hi Terry! Thanks for reading my journal. It is fun for me to write it and I can relive things if I want. You be careful over there too! I hope the Virus can be brought under control in the US soon.

    Looks interesting. I love the tonnato sauce in particular. I’ll bet that gives unusual depth to the salad—along with the poached egg, of course.
