Salad Time


You can probably find a lot of posts on my blog where I praise salads, but well, here we go again. I am a real fan of salads with tomatoes, cucumbers, onions and so on. Grandma did it already, my mother too, and even I as a kitchen noob can do it because it’s just like slicing and throwing the ingredients into a big bowl (laugh). A few days ago, me and my mother were hungry but it was very sunny and warm when we sat at her balcony and we decided to eat salad. As always, this was also … Continue reading Salad Time

Summer, Salad Time


In summer there is nothing that can beat a fresh salad, well, maybe ice cream can, but a salad gives you the same joy. Not that I live very healthy, I don’t really take care what I eat, but salads are simply the perfect dish for summer days. In the hot season there are often days where I can’t eat hot meals, on these days I prefer a salad or maybe some corn flakes with milk. But I really love mixed salads and I bet I wrote about this several times on my blog. Continue reading Summer, Salad Time

Weekly Photo Challenge: Vibrant


The theme of the recent WordPress Photo Challenge is about vibrant colors. I thought I would participate with a photo of a salad. I do not only like to eat salads, I do also like the colors of salads. I do usually add tomato, cucumber, lettuce and paprika to my salads, that means there are at least two vibrant colors, red and green, unless I add a paprika with a different colour like green or yellow.

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

Super Tasty Salad


Not sure how often I mentioned it, but I suffer from salad addiction. Ok, this is partly a lie. I am addicted to salads but I don´t really suffer, I rather enjoy salads. On the photo above you can see a salad that my mother made. It´s a tomato salad. You could also call it tomato and onion salad. If there is a reason why there are so many onions in the salad, then because my mother loves onions, well, I love them too. Some of my friends would probably say “Oh there are too many onions!”. Salads are a … Continue reading Super Tasty Salad

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
