Do you know that moment when you would like to eat a big pizza, drink a cola (non-dietary), have a sauce and possibly some french fries?
But then you suddenly think that this is what you ate yesterday and that you should go for salads because Christmas is coming and you don’t plan to gain more than 5 kg in weight?
Yes, you are not alone. Everyone has such moments.
Instead, what you need to know is that a salad does not have to be boring and tasteless. Even if it is mostly green, healthy and it is more than advisable to eat it, a properly prepared salad tastes at least as good as a pizza with sauce (and non-dietary cola).
So, what do we do at Container Street Food for a great salad, maybe the best in Suceava?
Well, legend has it that there was once a team of talented chefs, all employed at
Container Street Food and who wanted to make salad a famous name in Suceava. The team of chefs prepared classic salad recipes, but just like everywhere, they looked for ingredients that would turn the taste from very good to excellent.
Legend has it that since they discovered the recipe for excellence in salads in Suceava, Container chefs are the most famous in the area.
Joke aside, a good salad needs skilled hands, fresh ingredients and skilled cooks.
In Romania, history introduces us to salad in 1877, in the story of Harap Alb by Ion Creangă. The chronicles say that the Romanian was used to consuming everything he found good to eat, and the simple peasant came across the minimalist, unmistakable flavor of the salad he put next to the polenta.
Today’s gourmands would say that it is not a suitable choice, but the history of the Romanians tells us that this is how the salad is still eaten here.
Going back in time, the history of lettuce cultivation begins in Egypt, 5,000 years ago. To us, to the Romanians, it reached the Greeks and Romans. Because it was a spongy vegetable and did not need much care, the salad was quickly adapted in many parts of the world, becoming the main ingredient in many cuisines of the world.
Romania presents the oldest mention of the salad in a Brancoveanu manuscript, a collection of recipes by Cantacuzino, which contained recipes such as: “lettuce salad with vinegar”, “boran leaf salad” or “chicory root salad” .
Yes, it wasn’t Caesar’s salad back then. However, what is really important is that since then the salad was an independent food, which did not need other dishes to be assorted.
However, the ingredients used are at least surprising. They include pomegranate, grass, silk leaves or endive. As our oldest chefs say, seasoning and dressing are what turn a handful of vegetables into a real salad.
In the world, salad is a cult recipe that could be found in any respected restaurant. Even though there were many good recipes, the Caesar salad recipe was by far the most requested and appreciated.
In general, even the name salad is given to Caesar Gardini, an immigrant who opened a restaurant in Mexico and the United States. When, at a party, his restaurant supplies were running low, Gardini invented the salad. He took what he found in the kitchen, mixed it and prepared the new food in front of all the guests. Even today this kind of service is preserved in Tijuana. Caesar’s original recipe included whole lettuce leaves, soft boiled eggs and Italian olive oil.
The leaves were whole just to be grasped by hand.
