When I was a kid, there were no new year party without French salad. And Wiener schnitzel. But for last 2 decades nobody would eat such food with lots of fat.
Funny but this year everyone love it again. Retro is chic. And I am a BIG fan of replicas and retro things.
This is my version of that recipe:
300 g flour (half white half buckwheat)
1/2 teaspoon salt
20 g yeast
1 spoon sugar
3 spoons olive oil
1 spoon sunflower seeds
Mix yeast, warm (not hot) water and white sugar together in a large bowl. Set aside for five minutes, or until mixture becomes foamy.
Stir flour, salt, olive oil and sunflower seeds with the yeast mixture. Gradually mix with the 2-3 cups of hot water. Knead dough for 5 to 10 minutes or until it is smooth and rubbery. Place in an oiled bowl and cover with linen dish towel. Rise it for one hour on warm place – until the dough has doubled in size.
Bake it in a large muffin tray for about 1/2 hour at 180 C. When baked cut the tops of each bread muffin and scoop out the core:
While bread is in the oven prepare French salad:
1-2 cup green peas and sweet corn
1 cup homemade mayonnaise
Crop also potatoes and carrots into a small cubes. Cook them with green peas in a salted water and chill it when cooked, then chill down. Crop the cucumber into a small cubes.
For the homemade mayonnaise we need:
1 cup nut milk
tbsp ground mustard
1 slice lemon
1 pinch of ground pepper
1 tbsp dried parsley
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 – 1 cup cashews
Use your blender to mix nut milk, ground mustard and lemon juice. Slowly add olive oil, spoon by spoon. Add parsley and ground pepper to taste. As such mayo in quite thin, add socked and blended cashews to get it thick and nice.
In a large bowl stack cooked potatoes, carrots, peas, eggs and cucumbers. Add mayonnaise, senf, parsley, pepper, lemon juice and stir it. Fill chilled bread cups with it.
Have a happy new year 2013!!!
