What shopping list?
In his shopping cart, it is impossible to miss the key ingredient for sunny days: cucumber of course! Composed of 95% water, this green vegetable, which could not be more refreshing, slips into many recipes. Moreover, the cucumber can be cut in many ways, enough to vary the presentations. Still in the fruit and vegetable section, tomatoes, zucchini, melons, strawberries and cherries are popular this week! So many seasonal foods, which bring vitamins and freshness to our weekly menus.
As for dairy products, we don’t forget the feta and ricotta which gently decorate our house salads, as well as the mascarpone, essential for the preparation of tiramisu. In the meat and fish section, we choose shrimp, boneless chicken, and sirloin of beef, which we will marinate for just 1 hour, to enhance our Asian salad on Friday. Obviously, lasagna and orecchiettes (or pasta of your choice) will be there. And to end on a high note; a bar of dark chocolate will be needed to make the essential flowing hearts.
