Kietaviškių juodieji pomidorai

Autumn start is the best period to enjoy the fresh Lithuanian harvest. So the creative chef Gaspar Fernandes offers to make all of your favourite classics – Caesar salad. Although this time it will be a vegetarian version.

Ingredients for two servings:

  • 2 cucumbers;
  • 4 cherry tomatoes of “Kietaviškių”;
  • 2 black tomatoes of  “Kietaviškių”;
  • 2 yellow plum tomatoes of „Kietaviškių“;
  • Fresh and crunchy lettuce;
  • A small piece of white bread;
  • Olive oil;
  • Salt and pepper.

Dressing:

  • 1 stalk of parsley;
  • 3 spoons of mayonnaise;
  • ½ teaspoon of garlic;
  • 40 g of Parmesan cheese.

Preparation:

  1. Cut the lettuce and place it in a bowl with water and 5-6 cubes of ice. This makes the lettuce crunchier and crispier;
  2. Slice tomatoes and cucumbers;
  3. Cut the bread into cubes and toast it in a pan on low heat with 2 spoons of olive oil;
  4. For the sauce, mix mayonnaise, cheese (reserve some of it to grate on top), garlic, parsley and blend it together in a blender;
  5. Dry the lettuce, and place in a bowl along with tomatoes, cucumbers, and two spoons of salad dressing;
  6. Serve it in a bowl, add cheese and bread croutons on top.

Enjoy!
