Bollito Misto di Verdure
Mixed boiled vegetables served cold are easy to prepare and rich in
vitamins. Almost any vegetables that you can find at a produce store work
great: potatoes, beets, carrots, zucchini, string beans, etc. Just boil
them in separate pots with some salt and pepper, let them cool and
enjoy a refreshing and delicious side dish!
Fagiolini e Tonno in Insalata
String bean and tuna salad is perfect for a hot summer day. Cool cooked
string beans, mix them with tuna in a large bowl and add olive oil,
lemon juice and salt and pepper.
Insalata di Riso
Rice salad is a classic Italian summer dish. The recipe greatly varies
from cook to cook, ingredients can be substituted and added according
to your preferences. Chilled cooked rice is a base for the salad.
Tomatoes, olives, capers, hard-boiled eggs, tuna, artichoke hearts, parsley
give the salad its flavor. Serve chilled.
