We have had good weather here this last week and that has turned my thoughts to lighter meals that require a minimum of cooking or meals that can be eaten cool or cold. Today I am going to be talking about sousing, as it requires very little work to prepare and is at its best when eaten cool.
I find sousing can really balance up drier meats such as coney, chicken or even quail or tuna. It can be eaten with soused vegetables as a main course or can be used to liven up salads. Just a sprinkling of a bit of soused quail, chicken, coney or tuna can add a little protein to a salad and the oil and vinegar liquid works as the dressing.
