A Fertile Land
Last summer I finally decided to go and work in another place for the summer. So I took a job in an island in the Aegean. Coming from an island of the Ionian I couldn’t believe the difference between them.
That’s the amazing thing about Greece, it has places so different to each other that it almost feels like going to another country. My island Lefkas, has a very lush environment full of trees. It’s also terribly hot in the summer. On the other hand Naxos (the island in the Aegean) is more like a dry area, where the sun is truly blinding ( their houses being all painted white, doesn’t really help the situation). With a nice breeze, most of the time.
This island other than being full of ancient Greek historic monuments, has one of the most established agriculture trading business in Greece. Once I tried their tomatoes, I understood why. Every night when I finished work, I would go home and make myself a tomato salad. It was the best tomatoes I’ve tried in my whole life.
What they’re most famous of though is their Gruyère cheese and their variety of potatoes. Again, very very tasty. Where do all these fit with my potato salad recipe? I found these nice and flavorful potatoes and they reminded me of theirs. It’s the potato varieties that have a yellowish color that are tastier. This is true, in like 90% of the time. At least in Greece.
Simple Fresh And Healthy
So this potato salad is with only fresh herbs and an olive oil-garlic dressing. No mayo, no sausage and staff. Just Simple and healthy. I like to serve it with some fresh grilled fish, their amazing together. After all fish doesn’t need thick sauces, or other heavy staff that will cover it’s taste. Just a neat, light salad like this.
