Aphrodisiac Recipe – Potatoe & Avocado & Salmon Salad

Special dressing: The wonder boy… don’t know who’s signing, but I fell in love with that voice! (turn player on)

This could be a potatoe salad, or an avocado salad or even a salmon salad… but now that Valentine’s Day is getting near, I want it to be an Aphrodisiac Salad! Maybe there’s still a chance for us this February 14th! he, he, he.
I’m taking part in the Event Cucina d’Amore at Mele Cotte and I chose this ingredients because they are supposed “to get you high” sensualy and sexualy speaking!

Eve tried it with an apple and I will try it with this salad. Your man or your woman will follow his/her basic instincs when trying it because: first you will have something really really nice on, second there will be no kids around the house, third your favourite music will be playing, fourth you will have it ready in the fridge and the table will be set with candles and a good Rioja red wine and fifth (now comes the scientific and boring part) you’ll be eating Omega3, a good bunch of vitamines (E and D among them), proteins and minerals… what else do you need, ugh?

I’ve read, although I never heard this before, that it is said that all aphrodisiac properties are concentrated in the avocado seed and that men eat it to improve their viril power… just in case anyone is interested, first the seed has to be immersed in milk to soften.

Ok, here you have the ingredients and procedure… soooooo easy! Servings for 2, of course

1 big potatoe
1 package of smoked salmon
1 avocado
1 small red onion
1 small tomatoe salad
some parsley
a good spurt of extra virgin olive oil
thick sea salt
black pepper

Boil the potatoe, when tender cool it down and when cold cut in thick slices. Place in the plate. Add some salmon on top of the potatoe and some avocado small dices on top of the salmon.
With the minced onion and tomatoe and another cut slice of salmon prepare a guacamole. Once you have all these ingredients in a bowl, add a good spurt of oil and some salt and pepper. Stir and reserve in the fridge.
Cut the rest of the avocado in small pieces and add to the bowl. Place in a heart’s tin and add it to the plate.
Drop some oil on top of everything and the sea salt, decorate with some parsley and colored peppers.

HAVE FUN!!! And boys don’t forget to chew the seed… it’s too big to swallow it ;-)

My Funny Valentine is a great old Chet Baker song, and this sounds like a live version of him singing. He is so dreamy!

Your food looks too pretty to eat. It would definitely get me in the mood, Suavecita!

Hola Guapa! Never heard of Chet Baker, but I will look for him… I discovered the song when I saw Michelle Pfeifer over that piano at the Fabulous Baker boys: Beautiful, clever, great actress and on top she sings well!

Let’s get in the mood then ;-)

The Doodoolily is right, it’s Chet Baker.

As for your salad, I’m now like a Torro seeing red! lol

Ole, Peter.
Nuria, Fantastic salad. Let’s talk again on the 15th and exchange views!
I didn’t know you were at Group Recipes. Just saw your widget. Shall go and check out your recipes there as well.
I posted my aphrodisiac there today.

Sensual, sexy and succulent. You’ve covered these all with this recipe of “love” Nuria. Bravo chica!

Hi Nuria,
As I was leaving comments today, I say your great, tall chef’s hat and clicked on it. I’m so glad I did; you have a delicious blog here, and I’m looking forward to visiting again. -Cheers, Susan

Hola smart Peter! I like your analogy! But I wouldn’t like to be nearby ;-)

Kalimera Ivy! Yes I’m in group recipes, but lately I’m not visiting it… seriously, I don’t have enough time. Is it the same with you? I spend hours in front of the computer and still there’s all these things I want to do…

Gracias Peter! I feel so flattered! I guess that the salad goes better with your hemisphere temperatures (body and weather)!!! ;-)

Hi Susan! You are so welcome, thanks for your kind words! I’m going to your place to have a smell of your kitchen too! :D

Hola Ben! Yeah, let’s increase world’s population on Valentine’s night!!! ;-)

Ha, ha, ha! Val this is hilarious!!!! Please, don’t get me wrong, but it’s what happens when you (me, whoever) tries to literally translate a sentence… so funny!!!! What you said is: Leave the good season rolling pin… ;-)
How would I say, let the good times roll? Something like… Deja que el buen rollo te lleve or Deja que el buen rollo dirija tu vida… it’s hard!!!! I got it!!! Déjate llevar por el buen rollo!

Thanks Chris for hosting the event… it’s such a great beautiful subject! :D

Emiline, I left my computer today for a while… 13:00 just before lunch, I went to my terrace with a Big glass of fresh beer and layed in the sun for 1 hour… is there anything better in the world? … well maybe one of your cakes… just maybe!
