Mixed Salad with Cheese, Olive, Paprika and Basil

Lettuce, chives, tomato, grapes, green olives and basil

Shred the lettuce and the basil leaves and chop the chives and paprika

Mix together with the tomatoes, grapes and green olives

Cube some good quality cheese and add

Top with a dressing of your choice and sprinkle the basil flowers over

Dish up. I had ice tea, but then I always have ice tea.

Steak, eggplant and walnut salad

Soft lettuce and chives

Aubergine and walnuts

Radishes

Steak or another pan fry cut

Olive oil

Ketjap manis (Indonesian sweet soy sauce) or balsem vinegar

Mixed herbs, rosemary, thyme and parsley will do

Garlic, if you are a fan

Pan fry the steak

Slice the eggplant and fry in the same pan

When your meat is done, take it out and finish cooking the aubergine to take on the flavour left in the pan

Cut the aubergine smaller and slice the steak

Shred the lettuce, chop the chives and slice the radishes while the meat and eggplant are cooling

Mix everything together and add the walnuts

If you have juices left in the pan, add them to the salad together with olive oil, ketjap manis or balsemic vinegar and the herbs.

Mine was only a small salad for one, make as much as you need to feed your people.

Sète

Sète, a harbour town on the French mediteranian coast, not far from Montpellier.

I have stopped carrying a camera, which was clearly a mistake. The phones are fine for normal conditions, but when you have severe light conditions they don’t cope as well.

The lines again.. I didn’t cope as well with the severe conditions either. Despite booking for a month in Montpellier I left after ten days. It was just far too hot. They advertise the town as green and cool, but boy are they wrong. I don’t have a single photo of the town in Montpellier, simply couldn’t wait to get back indoors.

It was a little cooler on the day I visited Sète, my only day trip, so we have a few photos. Quite a pretty town.

Wish I had one of those sailboats..

It's a trip
