In the last fortnight I have been quite absent from the blog, between the book fairs in Miami and Guadalajara. It has been intense days and I have finally taken a break this weekend, but it is worth so much work, as it is a huge energy injection for all my projects.
Today I bring you the recipe of This salad that these days has given us to prepare at home. Both my husband and I love berza (kale) and I'm always looking for a new way to prepare it. I hope you enjoy it a lot too. It has occurred to me to call it winter salad for the ingredients and the texture that it has. It is very economical and I include ingredients that I almost always have on hand, such as pine nuts, which I use for pesto and desserts; The fresh cheese, which is preferred for our breakfasts; The ají, that I use for the Cuban stir fries; And the apple, which I usually eat at my snacks.
The first day I prepared it seemed a little weird to the first bite, but then I started to feel all the flavors and textures of this dish in my mouth and I could not stop eating. Give it two and it's ready in half an hour or less.
4 cups of cabbage, cut like for salad
1 apple (I recommend Gala type)
1/2 yellow or orange pepper
2 tbsp of raisins
1 lemon, its juice
2 tbsp of fresh cheese, collapsed
2 tbsp of pine nuts
1/4 of Cup of extra virgin olive oil

Combine the ingredients in the marinade and blend until emulsified. Salt and pepper are left to suit everyone.
