Scandinavian Summer Salad

Since a few days, I have been eating a lot of fresh food from our garden without taking pictures, just enjoying the moment of cooking my own food. I realised that I totally forgot to publish a new article since 2 weeks so all my apologize. Here is a new salad recipe that I have cooked for yesterday’s dinner with fresh food from a local market gardener. It was so good that I really wanted to share it with you…

Ingredients for 2 people:

  • 4 smoked herring fillets
  • 4 potatoes
  • 1 big tomatoe
  • 1 sucrine salad
  • 1 spring onion
  • 6 chives pieces
  • 2 eggs
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Maggi liquid seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon dry thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


Peel the potatoes, cut them in cubes and place them in a sauce pan. Cover with water and place on the burner to make it boil. When the water is boiling, reduce the heat at medium temperature and let cook 20 minutes. When it is cooked, drain the water and wash the potatoes in cold water to cool them. Let them drain in a colander. Wash and cut the salad and tomatoe and place them in your plates. Add the potatoes. Cut the smoked herring, onion and chives and add them to the plates. In a bowl, combien the olive oil, vinegar, Maggi liquid seasoning, black pepper, salt and thyme. In a saucepan, boil water and lower temperature until water slowly tremble. Using a tablespoon, create a whirlwind in the water, then, break an egg in the middle of it (beware, the whirlwind must not be strong, it has to be slow so the egg do not ramain at the same place in saucepan but do not separate the yolk from the white). Cook like this for 1 minute and carefully remove the egg from the water using a very thin slotted spoon. Immediately place on the top of the plates, always carefully if you do not want to break the yolk. Pour the sauce and serve.
