The making of… healthy American-Italian fusion salad

11 maggio 2013

You all know about my love towards food.

Food in general. When I travel abroad, I like to try new dishes, go to the fast food, eating an hot-dog or a waffle while walking to visit a city. Or sometimes to stop at the Sushi bar or at the Mexican restaurant with Martina, and discover what is our favourite place.

To be abroad for a long time is something completely different from a brief vacation or a conference in a foreign country. Your challenge is to survive – in my case for 12 months – without the beloved Italian food.

It’s not that American food is bad. Simply, it is totally different. Sometimes even the ingredients. Furthermore – you know – American cuisine is not famous in the world because of its healthy characteristics… but I like it.

I like a great number of American dishes, a lot of stereotypes, a lot of habits, a lot of fast-foods… that’s my real problem. Maybe I prefer tasty food just because… it simply tastes good! But I can’t perdure for 1 year just eating whatever I want. In my work, sometimes, I have to give suggestions, thinking about my patients’ health…

That’s why I tell you that it’s possible to live here and to eat healthy food. Or eventually try to change often!

Here is my personal (and very simple) recipe for an AmericanItalian fusion salad. Try it sometimes, you will be satisfied for sure!

1) Take the lettuce, accurately (and eventually) wash each leaf.

2) Cut the lettuce into pieces and put them into a plate.

3) Cut one tomato into pieces and add it in the plate.

4) Peel an half-cucumber, cut it into pieces and put it in the plate.

6) Mix the ingredients with the dressing.

7) The final ingredient: Imported real Italian Parmesan! Grate the cheese over the salad, and mix gently. The American-Italian fusion salad is ready! Simple, tasty, and healthy!

Et voila! The fusion salad is ready!

Et voila! The fusion salad is ready!
