I've got some nice raw salamelle in the fridge
That's quite close to salmonella, spelling-wise

Re: Nice food on a hot day

I'm with Economisto on this. I make a huge pot (cucumber, tomatos, some bread, garlic, onions, a red pepper, olive oil and vinegar) and keep it in the fridge. It's the only thing I can stand to eat in this weather.

And yes, all the ingredients can be found in any Coop or Migros.

Gazpacho. When I lived in Spain I ate it every day. Serve with a splash of olive oil, finely chopped bell peppers and croutons. You can buy it fresh from Jelmoli or similar.

Ummm, Italians and Swiss eat ray meat as well (I've got some nice raw salamelle in the fridge that are nice cooked or raw).

If you'd seen what I've seen under a microscope, as the result of eating steak tartar, you might decide not to eat it ever again.
I accept that it 'tastes' good, but it doesn't always 'look' too good afterwards.

Been eating it since I was a kid, so figure 40 years, never have had a problem, nor has anyone I've known.

You've now convinced me to cook the chicken (currently soaking in lemon juice) tonight rather than eating it raw!

I can see why it might take so long. (Though I'd have given up by now)

I need inspiration.

Besides salad, what can I make for tea (evening meal) that's nice on a hot day, takes less than an hour (from start to serve) and uses ingredients available from Coop?
i like to have curry on hot days when i don't feel like eating.

Re: Nice food on a hot day

Cold pesto pasta salad

1 pot of pesto
bag of pasta
4 spoons mayo / salad sauce
250 grams chorizo sausage

I am eating that tonight, for the kids chicken wings, french fries and green salad (and I am sure I will eat some of those fries)

Re: Nice food on a hot day

Ooo also Vitello Tonnato! Make a couple of plates and keep covered in the fridge for three or four days to mature. One of my favourites. Have a chilled glass of prosecco or something blush with it.

My general tip for hot days is to stick with protein and veg and avoid carbs or fried foods.

How's about simple grilled salmon fillet with lemon juice and olive oil and a Greek salad with lots of feta

When I make that, I buy a nice chunk of veal, and poach it in white wine and stock (preferably veal and/or chicken), then let it gel. For the tuna sauce, tuna (olive oil packed), anchovies, capers, and olive oil only, whizzed up to make something like a mayonnaise, and perhaps a bit of the cooking jelly to thin it. I have a meat slicer, so that makes life easier.

Also, with the cooking stock, now poach some onions and serve those as well with the tuna sauce (I generally peal them, and leave the root, then cut in quarters down to the root that they stay whole)

How does Val feel about the stock?

Re: Nice food on a hot day

How about bruschetta with rucola?! Or a nice salmon filled tortillia roll (just spread cream cheese on tortillia bread, put smoked salmon and sprinkle some water cress on it....roll it, chop it into pieces....serve)

Round off with a lovely, fresh, zingy lemon sorbet, served with a little chopped mint. Also, you can't beat a jug of ice cold home-made lemonade

Re: Nice food on a hot day

Setting off now. I think for this evening, the tomato and mozzerella (with a cunk of meat for mimi) wins it. And 'll have a go at gazpacho too to shove in the fridge.

Thank you all for your suggestions, they should keep me occupied for a while.


(Love sorbet too. Might have to invest in an ice-cream maker. Anyone selling one from their "unused gadget" cupboard?)
