Veldsla is Dutch for Valerianella Lacusta

  • Valerianella Lacusta (a.k.a. lamb's lettuce, mâche, rapunzel)
  • Tiny sweet cherry tomatoes cut in halves
  • Grated Grana Padano* (be generous)
  • Pine nuts (more than just for decoration!)
  • Just a drop of Balsamic vinegar (too much will spoil the taste)
  • Extra virgin olive oil (the one you would eat with bread)

*) I guess Parmigiano-Reggiano would work as well, but its taste might be too strong for this salad: Valerianella Lacusta is rather delicate. Though I didn't try it...
