New Salad


My mother told me that she found a new salad recipe. It’s basically salad combined with Spaetzle (South German pasta, we actually write it “Spätzle“). Before you ask, yes, Spaetzle deserve an own name because they’re tasting different than noodles. So, you basically cook the Spaetze and after they cooled down, you combine them with all kind of things such as freshly cut radishes, green leaf lettuce, maybe some red ones too and don’t forget cherry tomatoes (yes, the little ones).

Here is a photo that I shot when my mother prepared chili pepper salad. Someone from Tunisia inspired my mother to cook it as well and since then we’re enjoying the dish once in a while.

This was shot with my 40mm and I think this lens makes me go a bit too close for a food … Continue reading Tomato Onion Salad

I like how salad bowls with different colors look on different surfaces, like different tables or different wood surfaces. But of course, it’s mainly about the salads because they look fresh and make great food photographs. The photo in this post was shot in my mother’s garden. She prepared cucumber salad for us all, and I saw the dark brown bench and thought i t would be a perfect background for the salad bowl. I like … Continue reading Cucumber Salad
