You may know that we've very recently returned from an extended vacation (five weeks) in Spain and Portugal. We had a lovely time and ate some great food. We were in a number of different culinary regions but there was one constant: the ensalada mixte.
It is a plate of lettuce--sometimes mixed greens, sometimes straight iceberg or romaine--topped with any number of goodies: roasted beets, cucumber, tomato, red or white onion, pickled or lightly cooked carrots, and more. The one constant was a quartered hard-cooked egg, and a lot of very tasty tuna.
The photos here are two sides of the same salad. It was one of the best we'd had, and I asked about the tuna, which didn't taste like our normal canned tuna. I was told it is bonito, line caught and hand packed. I checked in a grocery and it is about 4€ a jar. I fully intended to get some...but let it slip and didn't. So sorry!!
