Esqueixada ("exqueixar" means "to tear" or "to rip" and it refers to the way of breaking apart the cod) also known as Esqueixada de bacalla, is a typical salad of Catalan cuisine that consists of desalted and torn dried and salted cod mixed with vegetables, such as tomatoes, onions, and sometimes pepper.
The tomatoes may be chopped finely or grated. It is dressed with olive oil. Olives are usually added, as well as (occasionally) other ingredients, such as hard-boiled eggs. When dressing it with oil and vinegar, this salad becomes a mouth watering dish.
This traditional Catalan salad is typically eaten during the summer and it fits perefectly with a glass of cold white wine.
