    The history of a meat salad

    The word ‘'salato'' or ‘'salata'' literally means "dish with dressing." Ancient Romans are believed to be the pioneers in the preparation of salads. The history says that in ancient Rome multi-day feasts were taken on which herbs and vegetables were served seasoned with honey, vinegar and salt. So this dish is the prototype of the contemporary salad. Every chef have at least one favorite salt in his cooking journal. Meat salads can be prepared on any feast, for gatherings of old friends or just to have dinner with your family. It can be both the salad and the main course and that is why the preparation of the feast will require a few recipes.

    The benefits of the salad can only be judged based on the characteristics and compatibility of its ingredients. This delicious meat salad recipe which we have prepared for you today is not an exception, of course. It includes many important and ingredients necessary for our body and especially the meat. We used a pork shoulder, which had been previously boiled with onions and spices.

    The fat in this part of the pork is very low, therefore, we can assume that the meat ingredient is lean. The main advantage is that animal protein is best absorbed, digested and excreted from our body without giving rise to processes of decay and decomposition. Moreover, especially lean pork contains a minimum of calories, in this case only about 200, and due to the high content of vitamins can bring much more benefits than even veal.

    For those who eat not only for saturation but also for the benefit it will be interesting to learn that pork contains valuable proteins and even essential amino acids, making it a food is not only delicious but extremely healthy. Mind that meat salad can be prepared with beef, but we still recommend a small piece of juicy and soft pork.

    In addition, our meat salad includes a number of other equally important ingredients like potato. Frankly, almost every festive meat salad contains it. Potatoes are an amazing vegetable. It provides the body with vitamins, amino acids, carbohydrates, proteins, and many other such necessary for our body components. Potatoes can relieve the body from high blood pressure, heartburn and significantly reduce the swelling of the limbs.

    In addition to our meat salad recipe ingredients mentioned, it contains celery and onions. The first product is particularly useful in geriatric purposes, as well as to improve digestion and calm the nervous system. Onion has excellent antiseptic and antibacterial action, and also contains potassium and flavonoids, which make it indispensable to simply maintain the health of the cardiovascular system. Moreover, the pickles will give a great flavor! Dress it with fresh homemade mayonnaise with olive oil and that’s it. Finally, we start cooking. Here is our meat salad recipe with photos attached.
