Growing up, bacalhau (aka bacalao/salt cod, sometimes salted pollock) was always one of my favorite foods from my culture. As Cape Verdeans, we typically enjoy bacalhau baked with boiled potatoes, boiled eggs, onion and sometimes cabbage or kale, then garnished with black olives and lots of yummy Portuguese olive oil. However, in the summer my favorite way to eat it is in salad form, with green olives, tomato, avocado, boiled egg and . . . lots of yummy Portuguese olive oil! Today I'm going to show you how it's done, and I hope you 'll give it a try!
