There is still always food to prepare though, and I stick to my slow food philosophy, trying to buy as little ready made (fast food) as possible. And now, with the herbgarden bursting with fresh herbs in a choir of sweet fragrances, it is so much fun to make healthy food.
With fried fish, like the pollock we had the other day, I make a cocumber salad which we all love. I have learned to make alot, and when the meal is over there is never any leftovers.
I make a fluid of vinegar (made last autumn with herbs from The Blue Garden), water, olive oil and (alot) of sugar. Then I add chopped herbs "of the day", the one in the photo has chives. One or two cucumbers are peeled and cut into very thing slices using the Norwegian invention "osthøvel". Cover the cucumber slices in the vinegar and let it rest some minutes before eating.
It is perfect with fish and potatos and a little (or alot) of sour cream/rømme.
