For a long time I did not introduce readers of Alimero with new recipes of not quite ordinary salads. This time I have a Thai-style salad.
I did not dare to completely reproduce the Thai recipe. The fact is that in this salad is placed a whole chili pepper. To whom as, and for me it is like death, so I prepared a soft version, using all the ingredients completely, except for this pepper.
If you are an admirer of spicy food, do not hesitate to add hot peppers, and I suggest that everyone else try this option with a variety of taste notes: sweet and sour, poppy and bitter.
Ingredients: 1 grapefruit, 1 red onion, 1 sweet pepper, 50 g of almonds, 1 clove of garlic, 1 tsp. sugar, 1 tsp honey, 1 tsp soy sauce, 2 tbsp. lemon juice, 2 tbsp. olive oil, parsley.
First we need to pickle the onions, for the salad it is cut into rings.
Fold the onions in a bowl, sprinkle with sugar and pour over freshly squeezed lemon juice. One tablespoon will be enough. While we are preparing other ingredients, let the onion marinate.
Pour boiling water over the almonds to clear the skin. After cleansing, we dry it on a towel, and then roast it in a dry frying pan until golden brown.
Sweet pepper cut into very fine chips, if you decide to add chili, cut it too (it is better to do it with gloves).
Greyfruit peel and all internal films, freeing the pulp in large pieces.
Prepare the sauce: beat olive oil, lemon juice, soy sauce and honey until emulsified. Add black pepper from the grinder.
Combine all the ingredients in a common container, add garlic squeezed through a press and chopped parsley, mix and dress with sauce.
You can serve in the general salad bowl, and in portion, but you need to eat such a salad immediately, until it softens and does not let out extra juice, then all the vitamins of this salad are provided to you.
