Friday 5th August 2005, early Supper

Just a Tapas Dish of Ensaladilla Rusa with a dollop of ketchup.

If I had to pick just one thing to be condemned to eat forever, I reckon it would be this salad. It has lots of flavour but in a muted kind of way and is really nutritious. It's just Tuna, Boiled Egg, Grated Carrot, Onion, Red Pepper, Potatoes, Mayonnaise and some Black Pepper.

Of course, the secret is in how they're mixed together and Ursula's mix is the best I've tasted, way better than any of the store bought stuff, so if you've only ever had it from the shops, try making your own!

It's one of the great paradoxes of living in Spain; the Spanish live longer and are happier than almost anywhere else in the whole of Europe, and that is of course partly down to the Mediterranean diet of lots of fish and lashings of olive oil. On the other hand, lots of food stuff for sale is simply not of the same quality as can be found on the heaving shelves of your local Tesco.
