If one doesn't know that single refers to a salad, when one is asked if they'd like some, it is not strange to remain puzzled. However, surely there have been stranger names, but not less compromising. Tatiana Perich, in her blog De boca en boca, explains: "It turns out that it has that name because it doesn't have meat and it doesn't need it. Besides it is said that in the countryside at the family lodgings (I imagine around the mountains), it was the favourite dish among single people, who wanted to keep in shape in order to get someone to marry."
Now that everything is clear, let's cook:
- 1 corncob
- Broad beans
- 1 chopped red onion
- 1 avocado
- 2 tomatoes
- 1 carrot
- Olive oil, vinegar, salt
- 1 potato
1. Boil separately the potato, corncob and carrot in cubes. Blanch the onion so it's not that agressive. Let everything cool down.
2. Peel the broad beans and cut them in two. Cut the cheese and peeled tomatoes in cubes. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl, and season with lime juice, olive oil, vinegar and salt to taste. Decorate with avocado and olives.
