That's what the book said!
Well, what a challenge...I'm up for it... so I gathered all the ingredients for the 'Corned Beef and Onion Salad" and away I went...!
Wasn't sure about that much cucumber...Paul's not a fan, but once it was mixed in you couldn't really tell how much was there, but it would have been missed if it hadn't been as it gave the whole dish a great crunch next to the the soft corned beef. Great flavours, great texture and such a bold statement....this shouted "eat me !!!" from the start, so bold it almost jumped out of the bowl!
I've never had capers at home...so this was a first for me too. Do you know that capers are the floral buds of an uncultivated thorny shrub from the Mediterranean region?
No? neither did I! You learn something new every day.
What does intrigue me is who thought to pick them and eat them in the first place? You know...who spotted this shrub with its little uncultivated buds upon it and thought..."I know, I'm going to pick these, pickle them in brine and eat them....yummo!" who ever it was, I'll pat thee on the back....nice little buds they are too!
