Is Little Red Ridding Hood lost in the WOODS? Click it!

Fairy tales are such a wonderful inspiration source. The Little Red Ridding Hood was one of my favorites back to my childhood and the moral of the story is still so true. I’m tired to see on the TV all these girls in her early 15s or 16s found dead by the river side or in the woods… I can’t help it… I see my daughter full of innocence and I shiver! Will we ever be save of that?
So, be careful little girls and young women, there’s wolves hiding behind the WOODS!!! I’m really serious about it!
This post is my entry to Click, one of my favourite events hosted by Jugalbandi. The theme this month is WOOD and this is what I came out with: Stuffed Red Tomatoes. A different way to eat a salad :D.

There’s nearly no cooking involved, you just have to boil the eggs and that’s it… done in no time!

Spring is in the corner… get your salads updated!

Want to know what a Mediterranean salad is about?
Want to surprise everyone with a new ingredient in your salad? Try this one with Duck’s ham!
Want to know what a Spanish Russian Salad is about? Sounds funny, doesn’t it?


Ingredients for 4 servings: 4 red tomatoes, 1 can of tuna fish (in olive oil), 1 medium green onion, 2 eggs, extra virgin olive oil, 4 fresh basil leaves, salt and black ground pepper. Feel free to add some olives too.

Cut the tomatoe's head, empty it and reserve its meat in a bowl. Boil the eggs and when done and cold cut in small dices and put in the bowl. Throw the tuna can in, the green onion chopped in small dices, the minced basil leaves, some extra virgin olive oil, salt and black ground pepper. Stir and get the flavours mixed together and fill the tomatoes with the mixture.
Have it cold with some lettuce or with some mayonnaise or allioli.

You’re so creative Nuria and so good with children’s stories. Have you ever thought of writing a cookbook with recipes mums would like to cook for their children and with a fairy tale to go with it?

i can’t tell from your pics, are those cherry tomatoes, or medium sized tomatoes?

Nuria, it’s better to be open, honest and not shelter children. They must know that it’s a wonderful world but there are dangers too. Think of the ocean…at times calm, serene, reflective…other times angry, turbulent and cruel.

Such is life.

Hola Peter! Thanks for the advise, but chico eventhough I know you are right, I cannot help it… I guess one has to be a mother to feel that way.

Hey Nuria! I love love love these fabulous photos! It really brings everything to life!

I know having kids can be tough…I only have stepdaughters, but they do wind up in some troubles every once in a while. …

Hola, Núria:

Hace poco tiempo que sigo tu blog y me gusta mucho, gran idea hacerlo en inglés. Por cierto, saladísima la escenografía del tomate perdido en el bosque, jajaja. Visita mi blog, también hablo de recetas, aunque en plan de andar por casa.

Nuria, I really wish there were more moms like you. Your advice to young girls is very serious, but at the same time you seem to capture the attention of the young.
Anyway, great pictures! I am also participating in that event and I wish you the best of lucks :D
