Slovenian salads -Motovilec

From the first times I was in Slovenia, I couldn’t stop noticing the great food this country has to offer. Freshly made,with ingredients that most of the people still work them in their garden, spiced combining Mediterranean taste and Slavic ,in the same plate.

But what is truly special in Slovenia is the culture of salads:) I think ,I saw hundreds of salads,if not planted then seeds, that everyone is planting in their gardens,so they can be proud and envied for their collection of tasteful salads .

During winter, the Central Market in Ljubljana,supplies the city with lots of salads so you can pick ur favorite,from local farmersP1060918aaa.

What people are telling I must try,is dandelion salad, but since the weather doesn’t allow us to go and pick the young dandelions, yet, I am delighting myself with a salad that I felt in love with,over this winter, really good for straightening the immune system and also fights anemia ,

P1070363aaa– Motovilec or cornsalad,lamb’s lettuce,doucette , that we prepared like this: after washing the salads really good, you add small chopped garlic -generously ,olive oil and vinegar -by tasteP1070367aaa and,as well, either one or two boiled eggsP1070369aaa. The salad will be refreshing and with the right taste 😉

    I agree with you totally: Slovene salads are wonderful! I prefer pumpkinseed oil to olive oil though – I love its nutty richness, especially if there is a little apple vinegar to go with it.
