The lemon salad a very summery recipe that has been part of the life of many Manchegos and has passed from grandparents to parents and children.
Lemon salad turns out to be a typical dish of some villages in La Mancha, specifically in Villanueva de los Infantes, where my parents were born
I loved it when on Sunday my father woke me up early and we gathered the whole family around the table to eat the lemon salad, it was magical! It is important to eat it with a spoon making bread boats (me without gluten).
