A Summer Dish


I am sure you agree with me that Summer calls for salads and nice cold dishes to help us overcome the heat. Here is a very simple dish, ideal for Summer and that can be served as appetizer or main dish.

Lettuce wraps
Ingredients for 4 persons:
8 small lettuce leaves
150 gr. of lean ham
2 hard boiled eggs
2 spoonfuls of olive oil
1 teaspoon of mustard

Remove the shells from the hardboiled eggs . Cut the ham into very tiny pieces , I use a crescent knife for this, and put aside.
Wash the lettuce leaves and dry well with a paper kitchen towel, take care not to tear and ruin them.
Put the hard egg yolks in a bowl, add the oil and mustard and using a wooden spoon mix and blend until you get a creamy mixture. Now add the chopped ham pieces and blend well. Divide the mixture in 8 portions. Wrap each portion in the lettuce leaves, rolling the leaf to overlap. Place on a serving plate and sprinkle with the chopped egg whites.

I use the same mixture to fill the tiny pachino (cherry) tomatoes as you can see in the picture.
Enjoy!

Sono sicura che siete d'accordo che l'estate richiede insalate e piatti freddi per combattere il caldo. Ecco un piatto molto semplice ideale per l'estate che puo essere servito come antipasto o per sostituire il primo .

Involtini di lattuga
Ingredienti per 4 persone:
8 piccole foglie di lattuga
150 gr di prosciutto cotto magro
2 uova sode
2 cucchiai di olio extravergine d'oliva
1 cucchiaino di senape

Sgusciate le uova sode . Lavate bene le foglie di lattuga, sgrondatele, asciugatele con carta da cucina facendo attenzione a non romperle. Mettete i tuorli sodi in una ciotola, unite l'olio e la senape e con un cucchiaio di legno , lavorateli a lungo finche avrete una crema omogenea. Unitevi il prosciutto trittato fine e amalgamate con cura. Dividete il composto in 8 parti e avvolgete ogni porzione in una foglia di lattuga, arrotondandola su se stessa. Sistematele su un piatto da portata, cospargetele con gli albumi tritati grossolanamente e servite.

Io uso lo stesso composto per riempire i pomodori pachino , come potete vedere nella foto.
Buon appetito!
