Lemon salad

If you are looking for a light side dish to accompany your richer main courses, the lemon salad is the recipe for you.

We continue our personal battle for the enhancement of side dishes by offering you an unusual recipe that probably few people know: lemon salad. Typical, not surprisingly, of Campania and the island of Procida , it is a perfect side dish to combine with more fatty dishes such as grilled or grilled meat. Fresh and fragrant, it is perfect to be enjoyed in the summer when the lemons are full of their goodness.

Preparing the lemon salad is really simple but in order for it to be balanced in flavors it is very important to use the variety of bread lemons : they have a thin skin, a thick white part that is not at all bitter and they are not very sour. As for the dressing , on the other hand, in addition to the classic oil, vinegar and salt, you can make it even tastier by adding red onion and a pinch of cinnamon.
