Broccolini and Roasted Chickpea Salad with Tahini Dressing

Broccolini and Roasted Chickpea Salad with Tahini Dressing

0
Guys, there’s so much good going on here! I guess I could have called this broccolini and roasted chickpea salad something like "broccolini bowl", cause it's definitely bowl food. Here’s what it's got going on: tender blanched broccolini tossed in a lemon-tahini dressing topped with Asian-spiced chickpeas roasted in the oven until crispy, a little sweet red onion, juicy mini-roma tomatoes, fresh cilantro and crunchy slivers of toasted almond....

Roasted Cherry Tomato Salad with Artichokes and Bocconcini in a Lemon Caper Dressing

Roasting tomatoes brings out their rich and sweet flavor, and in this salad, roasted cherry tomatoes are combined with artichokes, the tasty ones, the ones found at your favorite delicatessen or gourmet food store -- yes, raise your hand if you love artichokes! All this together with fresh, delicate buffalo mozzarella (bocconcini), tossed in lemon caper dressing and served over peppery arugula leaves. Splendid -- I love this salad! Artichokes...
Warm Smoked Salmon Niçoise Salad

Warm Smoked Salmon Niçoise Salad

0
This salmon Niçoise salad is a little less than traditional, but like the original it is a fantastically tasty and a terrific summer salad. Okay, I did retain a detail or two. There are boiled potatoes and green beans. And instead of tomatoes and hard-boiled eggs, I decided to use green asparagus. And a final detail. My Niçoise salad is made with warm smoked salmon instead of oil-packed tuna....
Asian-Style Chioggia Beet and Carrot Salad

Asian-Style Beet and Carrot Salad

0
What could be prettier than a beet and carrot salad? Both have an amazingly beautiful color, especially chioggia beets with their candy cane stripes. Also called “bull’s eye beet”, the great thing about them is that you don’t have to worry about a mess from those mesmerizing pink rings! I always expected them to look a little prettier on the outside too, but they actually have the same unassuming,...
This Japanese style daikon carrot coleslaw

Japanese Daikon Carrot Coleslaw

0
This Japanese style coleslaw is seriously simple and seriously delicious. Daikon and carrot pair fabulously together, especially in a tasty Asian-style dressing. Okay, I am biased, I love most any foods with an Asian flair. So if you haven't already done so, give daikon a try. It's delicious. If you are not already familiar, daikon is a long white vegetable from the radish family. It’s similar in appearance to fresh...
Roasted Japanese Eggplant with Tahini Sauce

Roasted Japanese Eggplant with Tahini Sauce

0
So I thought it was high-time I share one of my favorite ways to enjoy roasted eggplant. Sweet and tender roasted Japanese eggplant (char-grilled a little at the end) served with sesame tahini sauce. A dream combination. But that's not all. There are garnishes. Pomegranate, pine nuts and parsley. P-P-P. Three important P's. The crème de la crème that pulls everything together for the most perfect, delicious side dish. Are...
Thai-Style Coleslaw with Kohlrabi

Thai-Style Coleslaw with Kohlrabi

0
This crunchy kohlrabi salad is the perfect way to introduce Germany’s darling to your table – although gnarly looking, it’s a very tasty vegetable. It can be stir-fried, steamed or boiled, but I swear raw is the way to go! Flavor and texture-wise, kohlrabi has an apple-like crunch, slightly resembles a radish in texture and has a similar taste to broccoli stem, but is juicier and sweeter – and there...

Winter Pasta Salad with Roasted Vegetables & Buttermilk Dressing

My favorite ever winter pasta salad is loaded up with vegetables, roasted to perfection. First there is roasted Tuscan kale — yes roasted! With slightly crispy edges and tender leaves. And then there are roasted sweet potato, good ole spuds, and parsnip — PLUS oven roasted chickpeas! All of which are tossed with spiral noodles and a to-die-for herb-buttermilk dressing. Yeeees! Why pasta salads can be considered healthy If your pasta...

This Mediterranean green bean and cherry tomato salad makes a great warm-weather side dish. It’s so quick and easy to prepare and full of fresh flavors. For a light meal, I like to serve it with some fresh crusty bread and a chilled bottle of rosé while I sit back and enjoy the summer sun. Fresh produce transform simple recipes into something sensational If there’s one thing I love about summer,...

White Radish Salad with Apple, Fresh Dill & Pine Nuts

0
Italian white radishes are a cool-season crop which grows best in spring and fall. They are a great addition to salads or, as in this recipe, as the basis for a salad. When buying radishes, make sure that they are very fresh, with smooth skins and firm roots (wrinkles and cracks are a sign of old age), otherwise your salad will not be a crisp as it should be....

Despite the chilly Hamburg weather, I am embracing summer... fully. And it starts this summer zucchini noodle salad. Seriously, we left 38°C in France, only to come back to 14°C in Germany. We are talking a major difference here -- in the height of summer! So yeah, I am trying to channel some warm vibes to the rest of you by sharing this super delicious, simple to make zucchini...
Würziger Tomatensalat, Spicy Tomato Salad mit Chilischoten

Spicy Tomato Salad

0
About half the size of a roma tomato, egg-shaped baby roma tomatoes are deliciously sweet with a more intense flavor and aroma than the larger variety. They have an elongated "egg" type shape and a deep color. I love these and I adore this tomato salad. First of all, it's delicious. The chili pepper really brings out the sweetness of the tomatoes and makes it really something worth getting excited...
Tuscan Kale Salad with Pumpkin, Cranberries & Feta

Kale Salad with Roasted Pumpkin, Cranberries & Feta

0
So the thing about this kale salad with roasted pumpkin is that you really need to enjoy a little bit of everything in every bite. This is a salad with sweet, tart, salty and nutty flavors, so it tastes best if you get a mix of two, three or all of these flavors together. There's the delicious chestnut-like flavor of hokkaido, my favorite winter squash, sweet tender Tuscan kale,...
Summer Beans with Pears and Bacon

Green Beans with Pears and Bacon

0
An odd sounding but absolutely delicious dish in Northern Germany is one called “Birnen, Bohnen und Speck” (green beans with pears and bacon). I first was introduced to this delicious number by my friend Ines. It’s a regular at her family functions. Intrigued, I had to give it a try. My way of course. Though, I’m not sure there is a right way. I think every family has their...

Roasted Cauliflower and chickpeas makes for a delicious side dish or even light lunch.

There are roasted chickpeas tossed in cayenne and smoked paprika, which in the end are served together topped with fresh herbs, pine nuts and a tahini-lemon dressing. Plant-based, delicious goodness.

Purple Cauliflower Salad with Caper-Lemon-Dressing

Purple cauliflower. Is it not beautiful? And you may be thinking “is this really natural?”. Yes, it is! As part of the Brassicaceae family, just like red cabbage, it too can be found in this beautiful hue thanks to the antioxidant anthocyanin (also found in red wine my friends!). No dye, no GMO. Just an all-natural, super tasty bowl of steamed purple cauliflower tossed with bright summery lemon juice,...

Oxheart Cabbage Coleslaw with Apple and Mango

0
Oxheart cabbage is the one with the pointy head and my absolute favorite cabbage. Actually it’s the only cabbage I buy on a regular basis. It has succulent leaves making it excellent choice for salads like coleslaw and is everyone’s darling for sauerkraut. More often than not, I add it broth-based soups, let it wilt a little, then serve it up. Officially the season for oxheart cabbage is from May...
