The best recipe with chicken liver: Salad with chicken liver with honey-rosemary dressing


Today I wanted to talk about nostalgia. You know that feeling, when you want to travel back in time into the moment, when all over the flat a magic aroma of fresh baked cake was being spread. Just because it was Sunday and your mom had enough time to make something special for the family. Or just because you said you would love a piece of cake. Not a tradition in your family? Well in Ukraine we have a lot of interesting traditions and customs. Families have their own recipes that travel from grandma through mom to daughter for centuries. I find it actually very special to have a family recipe that could bring you back to those careless times...Ok,ok, I got it. Enough for today. Let us talk about the actual recipe I want to share.

 Remember one of my first posts? Light and hearty salad with chicken liver got quite popular during the whole life of my blog, I have to say. And I can fully understand it. Rich taste, healthy ingredients, balanced nutritional value and much more. So I modified the recipe and enriched it with additional rosemary note for exquisite taste. Lunch or dinner, it is JUST A PERFECT CHOICE.
Ingredients:
for 2 portions

200g of chicken liver
8 cherry tomatoes
mixed green salad 
2 mushrooms
1/2 avocado
sprinkle of pepper, salt
2 tbsp of olive oil
1 tbsp coconut oil (any oil for frying)
2 tsp of water
1/2 tsp of honey (for #iquitsugar followers rice syrup is an alternative)
1/2 tsp dried rosemary
2 tbsp soy sauce

Wash the liver in cold water and dry it with a paper-towel. Heat the pan with a sprinkle of coconut oil or any oil you prefer to fry on. Fry the liver for a few minutes from every side. Add some water and stir covered for 5-7 minutes. After the liver is ready (if you stick a fork in it no red liquid appears on top) add 2 table spoons of soy sauce and fry a bit more so that the liver becomes darker because of the sauce. Meanwile prepare all the veggies. By preparing I mean - wash them and chop. Prepare basic salad on the plate: mixed green salad, halved cherry tomatoes, avocado cubes and mushroom slices. On the veggie-pillow put hot juicy liver. Spice the salad with some pepper and salt. Mix honey, oil, rosemary and water and pour the salad with honey-rosemary sauce.

As you see: easy and quickly healthy food is on your table. All you need is a teaspoon of patience and sprinkle of time ;)

Bon Appétit!
