Danish Summer Tacos

Right here is an unconventional however but nice taco recipe that we wish you to attempt. It consists of making tortillas from grated zucchini/courgette and filling them with a creamy and crunchy yogurt, cucumber and potato salad. Consider it as a light-weight and summery tackle tacos that most likely will drive taco conservatives mad however make the remainder of us glad. As a result of yet one more strategy to eat taco shouldn’t be a foul factor.

The zucchini tortillas is a recipe we now have been making for the previous couple of months, utilizing egg, almond flour and parmesan to bind them collectively. We first noticed this concept floating round on varied Pinterest boards. If in case you have been making our vegetable flatbreads, this can be a thinner model that’s rather more elastic (primarily due to the cheese) and due to this fact works nice as a mushy tortilla shell or flatbread.

The creamy yogurt salad is our model of a Danish summer time salad (sommersalat). It’s historically made on smoked contemporary cheese, creme fraiche, radishes, cucumber and chives and it’s a basic summer time dish, served on prime of a smørrebrød or inside a sandwich. We’ve got upgraded the normal model with strawberry, apple, dill, parsley and cooked potatoes and it’s really a pleasant mixture of flavors and textures. The candy and fruity notes works very effectively with the contemporary herbs and cooked sliced potatoes. It’s fairly tough to come back by smoked contemporary cheese when you reside outdoors of Denmark so our model as a substitute has full fats yogurt, lemon juice and dill. When you do discover smoked contemporary cheese you must positively change half of the yogurt with it in this recipe.


We are literally penning this from Denmark as we’re spending a number of summer time weeks with our Danish household so aside from smoked cheese, we may also be feasting on rødgrød med fløde, smørrebrød and pålægschokolade. Blissful summer time!
