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). Plus points if you add some  cubes of ewe’s cheese and a few freshly picked parsley  leaves (truth told, … Continue reading New Salad

Cucumber Salad


It’s no big news that I love all kinds of salads. I don’t just like to eat them, I also like to photograph them. 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

The Problem, It’s Way Too Tasty


I said this very often on my blog, I absolutely love to eat salads. But I recently developed a really bad habit. I am buying a salad almost every day. You might think “Wait, but isn’t eating vitamins on a daily basis very healthy?” and you’re right. But it’s not so much about the fact that I eat salad every day, it’s more about the problem that I get it from the salad bar in my favorite super market. Before I mention the problem, let me talk about the advantages first… The thing is, they have so many ingredients in … Continue reading The Problem, It’s Way Too Tasty

I Love Delicious Salads


My mother made a salad on her birthday barbecue party. I had to take a photo because I do not only like the colours of salads, I did also like the white colour of the salad bowl. Then I saw our red garden bench and the idea came up that a white bowl full of salad should look very cool with a red background. This is rather a scene I am proud of. My mother said it would look pretty nice like a product photo. To be honest, I do think that too. I think it’s about the colours as … Continue reading I Love Delicious Salads

Bulgur Salad, The Perfect Dish For Warm Weather


From one day to the other the weather changed from rainy weather to hot weather. It´s at the moment very warm and I really dislike to eat warm dishes when the weather is so warm. I prefer colder dishes as salads then. One of my favorite salads is the Bulgur salad that the woman of the Turkish fruit dealer creates. I think I wrote about it already but I have some new photos and thought I do it again. Bulgur is made of durum wheat as she told me and it is often used in Turkey, she said. She said … Continue reading Bulgur Salad, The Perfect Dish For Warm Weather

Turkish tasty Bulgur Salad


There is a turkish fruit shop and bakery not far away from my appartement. I go shopping there since over five years or maybe more. The prices for fruits and vegetables and other things are pretty reasonable there. More favorable and tasty than in any other shop I know. It´s my favorite shop for such things. It´s a family-run shop. A man with his woman and son. I’m on very good terms with them and always if I go there we have some nice talking. I like that so much and it is such a difference to many other shops. … Continue reading Turkish tasty Bulgur Salad
