His and hers. Black currant gin martini and Pimms.
Guess which is which?
My friend Eric recently told me to make this salad (taught to him by Sina, a mutual friend, who is Iranian): watercress and mint - but more mint; feta (we all like the French feta from Sahadi's); lavash - that very flat bread that looks and feels like linen napkins; olive oil.
Wrap the oil-moistened leaves with some cheese in bites of the lavash. Eat.
That is all.
Last night I made it without the feta, and did shake some sherry vinegar over the leaves, contrary to instructions. It was wonderful.
Tonight, we'll eat it precisely as instructed.
