Salt cod salad, potatoes, red onions and tomatoes

salt cod salad with red onions, black olives, raisins, pine nuts and potatoes, perfumed with lots of Basil. Today a fresh salad in the wake of the Sicilian tradition, with everyone of my island. The cod salad is light and Summer,and the extra touch of confit tomatoes gives the dish a nice acidity and a certain sweetness. The OF SALAD RECIPES I am always a joker in the summer. Not only because they are cold, but also because they can prepare in advance.

A tasty dish, some call also codfish Catalan, you can prepare in advance and serve as an appetizer, as second or even as a main course, especially for lunch. This summer salad of cold cod I love it. The confit tomatoes prepare them almost every week and the fresh onion is perfect to accompany this fish with a delicate flavor, I bake it for a short time for steam to leave intact the consistency. If you don't feel like making the tomato confit, use Piccadilly tomatoes Pachino type or type, fresh and with lots of Basil! At this point you just have to have a look at all my RECIPES WITH COD’ (you will also find the VIDEO RECIPE OF COD’ WITH TOMATO AND OLIVE) and my SICILIAN RECIPES and wish you good day!

A simple dish but yummy.
I don't buy the cod often because, Although they sell soaked, often remains very salty and you must riammollarlo to make him lose flavor.
Excellent recipe!

Hi Rubina! I must say that here in Rome the cod is often far too devoid of salt. But in any case if I read it in milk should lose any excess of flavor. This recipe is yummy, If you find a good cod try it and let me know! ADA
