RECIPES FROM THE RETRO HOUSEWIFE

SALAD

Salad with Polenta Slices, Italian

Ingredients
  • 200.0 g Polenta Cornmeal (fast cooking)
  • 300.0 ml Milk
  • 300.0 ml Water
  • 1.0 Pinch Salt
  • 1.0 Pinch freshly ground nutmeg
  • 100.0 g Parmesan Cheese
  • 2.0 Tbsp. Olive oil
  • Seasonal Tossed Salad
Preparation Instructions

Pour the milk and water into a sauce pan, add the salt and nutmeg and bring to a boil, being careful not to burn the milk. Stir in the polenta or cornmeal with a wooden spoon, stirring until the polenta has the right consistency (you will need a firm dough). Remove the polenta from the stove and fold in the parmesan cheese. Plop the polenta onto a wooden board and roll out until it is about 1 cm thick. When the polenta is cool, use cookie cutters to press out pieces of polenta in different shapes.

Add the olive oil to a frying pan and fry the polenta slices until they are golden brown. Serve portions of your tossed salad, dressed with vinegar and olive oil and top with the polenta slices and some fresh parmesan cheese. Serves 4.
