Two recipes and Colombian music

Got these two recipes when we celebrated Christmas and New Year’s with friends in Puerto Madryn, Argentina. The combination of the first recipe didn’t sound too appealing to me, but I tried it, and I had to admit, it is just amazing! Try it yourself (make sure you have a nice, ripe, preferably Filippino;), mango)!

Rucola, blue cheese and mango salad


  • Rucola leaves (use the stems for the next recipe)
  • Blue cheese(cut up)
  • Mango (ripe! in dices)
and drizzle with 
  • olive oil

Rucola spread


  • Rucola stems
  • Cream or white cheese
and use as spread on
  • Garlic toast

(or add garlic to the mix instead and serve on bread or toast)

Enjoy those!

This piece of music was played in a salsa club in Cali, Colombia. The whole place shouted and sang with this song, very cool! The title ‘De Donde Vengo Yo’ roughly translates to ‘from where I come’, and it is a local Colombian song, celebrating their ‘Colombianism’ and the diversity of the Colombian people.
