Well, the same rules apply to this savory spinach tomato cake salé.
Packed with Mediterranean favorites like sun dried tomatoes and feta cheese, we think you and your family are going to love it!
WHAT IS CAKE SALÉ?
First things first: cake salé is a French savory cake. In fact, salé from French to English literally translates to ‘salty’.
But there’s a lot more than salt alone going on in this savory cake recipe. Sliced sun dried tomatoes bring a tangy quality to the overall flavor profile that is further boosted by the brined, peppery saltiness of good quality Feta cheese crumbles.
Chopped spinach brings a garden fresh element to the mix. One bite of this soft and savory cake, and you’ll wonder how you ever got through life without this French delicacy in the steady rotation.
