Asiatischer Gurkensalat mit Koriander und Sesamkernen

Asian-Style Cucumber Salad with Cilantro & Roasted Sesame Seeds

Cucumbers add crunch and a refreshing flavor to all sorts of salads. This cool eastern-influenced cucumber salad makes for a tasty and refreshing side dish, one with a little kick to it.

Spaghetti with Anchovies (Spaghetti con Acciughe) and tomatoes

Spaghetti with Anchovies (Spaghetti con Acciughe)

This dish tastes like it came directly from the Mediterranean. Literally. Yes, anchovies are harvested in the Mediterranean (and North Atlantic). I love anchovies, and I must say they are quite subtle in this dish, but my German boyfriend was confused by that unidentifiable sea-like flavor. I didn't tell him beforehand. Yes, good strategy. I think some people have a mental adversity to anchovies... In the midst of this...
Avocado-Dressing mit Zitrone und Joghurt

“Homestead” Lemon and Avocado Dressing

I really love a good avocado. My favorite way to eat one is sliced in half, core removed, drizzled with olive oil and a splash of balsamic vinegar, topped with a generous sprinkle of coarse sea salt and freshly ground pepper.

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...
Asian noodle salad

Asian Noodle Salad with Tender Greens

This simple and delicious Asian noodle salad is topped with toasted sesame seeds, cilantro, red pepper and green onions. I sometimes even through in some baby corn for extra flavor, color and crunch.

This Japanese style daikon carrot coleslaw

Japanese Daikon Carrot Coleslaw

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...
