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

Tasty Salad


My mother made the salad in the photo at the top. The way it was prepares is kinda unusual. She basically grated the salad but it was an interesting and new experience to eat it like that. The ingredients were lettuce, onions, tomatoes, cucumber, and radish. Putting radish into it was unusual too as I’ve never seen someone in my family preparing it like that. But it was suggested by my mother and I agreed that we should try it out. And yes, it does fit. And it is another new salad photo in my collection on this blog. Continue reading Tasty Salad

Chili Pepper Salad


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. It’s not for weak people because the salad contains quite a lot of chili peppers. Apart from that, sliced paprikas, tomatoes, garlic, and onions are used too. It all goes into the pan where it is gently roasted and spiced with salt and pepper. When it’s finished, my mother puts it in a salad chopper. After that, it goes into a bowl with a … Continue reading Chili Pepper Salad

Tomatoes and Onions


Like the other day, I managed it again to do 4 km today. Yesterday I didn’t manage it but it was quite humid and I gave up after 3 km. But today it was warm but very windy and this is how summers have been here a long time ago. It’s the fresh breeze that makes it acceptable. So, I put my running clothes on and went outside and I enjoyed the exercise with the wind. When I was done and after the shower, I visited my mother. She cut some tomatoes and onions and we ate them with pepper … Continue reading Tomatoes and Onions

Tomato Onion Salad


We had a barbecue today in the garden. And as always, my mother prepared a salad as a dessert. This time it was tomato and onion salad. Super fresh and delicious! And since I like to take photos of fresh salads, I shot one this time again. I saw this nice park bench and thought it would be a great background. This is why you almost see the dressing spill out on the right side. The surface wasn’t even. 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
