I love to add some small side dishes or gourmet to every meal to make an everyday food a bit different. I enjoy eating salads and my latest favourite has been smoked salmon salad -of course-I am in the land of salmon after all. You probably cannot even believe it but for example at the moment salmon is only 7.99e/kg!!! My signature salad includes smoked salmon (bbq smoked salmon I mean), avocado, rock melon, salad, salted cashews (occasionally dry cranberries) and this lovely balsamic red onion mix on top. My mum made this absolutely gorgeous red onion mix and I had to ask the recipe as it was so tasty. I have made it myself before but I have not let it rest for a day in the fridge. By letting the onions sit in the fridge makes them softer and sweeter. You can find the easy recipe below.
In general I have to say I have enjoyed my holiday in Finland fully. In the beginning of the holiday I was eating forest blueberries, raspberries and strawberries, now the season of black and red currants has started. This week every morning I have gone to my parents’ backyard and eaten blackcurrants straight from the bush. Oh how lovely and sweet they taste when being freshly picked and they are so healthy too only a handful of them contains the required amount of vitamin C for the day!!!!
Anyway enjoy this easy, quick and tasty red onion mix in your own summer salads.
