Spring Salad with seaweed

- The first thing we do is the balsamic reduction, which will place the substance in a pot to simmer for 20 minutes. Allow to cool to thicken.
- Then thoroughly wash the ingredients out to make the tomatoes and cut into slices about half a centimeter. The idea is to achieve 9 slices each.
- Apart, peel the mango and cut into squares of side 4 cm.
- Season tomato and mango with salt and pepper on both sides and available in a simulated plate tower, so that they are interleaved, 3 tomatoes and 3 handles for salad.
- After having the tower, sprinkle with seaweed (to taste) and then place one over fmanchego and bring to the plate.
- At the time of serving, place some leaves to decorate above, and the balsamic reduction around.
Pineapple and seafood Salad
- A pineapple
- A type iceberg lettuce
- A lemon
- Salt and pepper
- Seafood Bars
- Peel the pineapple and cut into slices. Estimated half slice per person. Cut the slices into pieces and set aside.
- Wash the lettuce well and cut into very thin strips. Put away.
- Peel the boiled shrimp. Cut the bars into pieces of seafood.
- Mix mayonnaise with ketchup – 4 parts mayonnaise for a portion of ketchup.
- Elect to use individual plates (the big glasses are ideal). Give each a first cut of lettuce and a little squeeze of lemon on top. Then add seafood, pineapple and season with black pepper and some salt. Finally add the pink sauce on top.
- Serve as soon as possible.
Suggestions: mayonnaise should be fresh and save it in the refrigerator to avoid decomposition. If you noticed that the mayonnaise is something stuck to the glass, throw it. On the other hand, if you are allergic to shellfish, try this salad with vegetarian sausages.
