Sweet potato salad

  • I have never prepared sweet potatoes before, but I was intrigued to see them in the market. At least as big as an ordinary potato, but more robust and more expensive. But I was more surprised when I got home, when I cut the first one. A very hard texture (I would say similar to celery) with orange core, it seems to be a hybrid between potato and carrot.

The sweet potato, Ipomoea batatas, as Wikipedia shows us, is grown in tropical and subtropical regions, hence the conclusion, and the higher price on our market. Originally from South America, it has been cultivated for 5,000 years.

Known as kumara in Polynesia, satsuma imo in Japan - from the old Satsuma province - the sweet potato appeared in Europe thanks to Columbus. In 2005-2006, according to statistics, China was the largest producer and covered 83% of world production.

Its fibrous and hard core (but which softens unexpectedly quickly and boils like white potatoes) is rich in carbohydrates, beta carotene, fiber, vitamins C and B6.

In conclusion, although almost not yet integrated in our culinary habits, maybe we aroused your curiosity to prepare the sweet potato at least once, enough to make a wish :).

Cut the potatoes into cubes and boil them. Cut the cheese into cubes, thinly sliced ​​ham, as well as cabbage.
For the sauce, mix all the ingredients well and divide them in equal quantities in the two bowls from which you will serve.
The potatoes, although they look hard, will soften in 10-15 minutes, check them anyway with a fork. Drain them and let them cool a bit. Divide the amount of ham, cabbage and potatoes into two bowls and mix carefully (so as not to crush the potatoes), to distribute the sauce evenly. Good appetite!

Let it be a good few weeks since Mr. B tells me that he would eat octopus, only that I always had other meals planned and I didn't hit the octopus while shopping, only that the other day I got upset and I specially gone to buy for man's lust. Now I have to admit that she smiles at me as if I'm on vacation.

Even if I wasn't lucky enough to find something extraordinary, it was good even so.

I thought I would write you the recipe, especially if you are looking for different dishes for the Easter holidays. This warm salad is delicious, easy to prepare and definitely goes well with a festive meal.

For the details on cleaning, I wrote in the first recipe on the blog that had octopus as its main element. Recipe HERE.

After Mr. B cleaned it, I prepared the pot of water for boiling. I mixed the water with the juice of 2 oranges, 1 red onion, peppercorns and 1 teaspoon of apple cider.

I covered the pot with a lid and let it boil at low temperature for 1 hour.

When the time was up, I took out the octopus and let it rest for 30 minutes before portioning the tentacles, but marinated with orange juice, salt and a drizzle of olive oil.

While the lady rested, I took care of the rest of the ingredients for our salad.


  • lettuce leaves (mixture)
  • pomegranate
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 1/2 avocado
  • potatoes (cooked in airfryer)

For potatoes:

For dressing:

  • 1/2 orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • salt
  • pepper

I used an assortment of small potatoes, ideally it would have been to have new potatoes, but I was not so lucky. I cut the potatoes into cubes and kept them in water for 30 minutes. It is one of the secrets of preparing potatoes in an airfryer.

I drained the potatoes and dabbed them with kitchen towels to remove the excess. I seasoned the potatoes I threw in the airfryer. The new Philips Airfryer it has a smart sensor that automatically adjusts time and temperature, and for my amount of potatoes it is set at 170 degrees and 15 minutes, so that they are crispy and golden.

If you do not have such a device, you can also prepare the potatoes in the oven.

I also left the potatoes in the machine, during which time I started assembling the salad.

The salad leaves over which I added the pomegranate, thinly sliced ​​onion and avocado sprinkled with lemon juice so as not to oxidize.

After removing the potatoes from the pan, I replaced the sieve with the grill accessory of the appliance, in order to brown the squid tentacles nicely before they were added over the salad.

I set the device on the fish program with 5 minutes of cooking time.

As everything has been so simple so far, in the end you just have to get the potatoes together with the tentacles over the salad, sprinkle with dressing, season to taste (if necessary) and that's about today's salad.

Greek chicken salad

A Greek chicken salad, is a tasty appetizer or a consistent dinner, which we can prepare quickly, with some ingredients that we have in the house.
It's all about Greek yogurt. Let's see what it's all about. Yogurt is a beneficial food for our health and because it is made from milk we will receive a quantity of animal protein, calcium, vitamin B2, B12, potassium and magnesium.
Unlike normal yogurt, Greek yogurt, after the preparation process, is forced to eliminate liquid whey and lactose, resulting in a yogurt with a thicker texture. Greek yogurt it is more consistent, has two to three times as much fat as normal yogurt. This yogurt is better tolerated by those who are lactose intolerant and contain more calcium.
Greek yogurt it can be mixed with garlic, blackberries, parsley to obtain sauces, but it can also be combined with fruits or cereals. Due to its thicker texture and stronger flavor, Greek yogurt is often used as a safer substitute for smoked, fried or mayonnaise.
