Something you will find on our dinner table quite often in summer is a nice salad. They are easy to prepare, no need to spend hours in the kitchen, and most of the time they are healthy and perfect on a hot day. This Greek Potato Salad is inspired by a Greek Shepherd’s Salad and they know how to eat well and healthy on a hot summer day. The salad also reminds me of my last vacation in Greece… if you serve the salad to me on the beach along with some nice drinks, everything would be perfect ;)
We are big fans of mezze, antipasti, and tapas around here. All those small (and sometimes larger) dishes you place on the table and everybody just grabs whatever he/she/they want. Love it! In my opinion, it actually doesn’t matter if you are a large group or just a party of two ;P This Roasted Cauliflower with Whipped Feta is just one of many delicious options we like to make here at home. So get your forks out and let’s start eating! From my experience, you should act quickly because a plate like this is empty in an instant ;P
In summer, salads are always our first choice. When the apartment is “burning” with temperatures over 25°C even at night… you definitely do not want a heavy dinner before you go to sleep. Big dinner in combination with high temperatures normally means bad sleep or no sleep for us at all. Eating some salad for dinner is a much better option here. Something like this delicious Roasted Chickpea Salad with feta, for example. So much better ;)
I think you could say salads are almost always delicious and pretty healthy. Not sure if both applies here as well. This Cobb Salad here is definitely super tasty – no doubt about that – but healthy? I assume the combination of all of the ingredients is necessarily super healthy. I can ignore that and enjoy this delicious treat… I guess you can too ;P
Are you a gardener? We planted kohlrabi on our terrace for the first time this year – with great success, I have to say! We were able to prepare several dishes with the kohlrabi we harvested, including this delicious Thai Style Kohlrabi Salad. Super easy to prepare and on a hot summer day a great salad or side dish to serve on a BBQ. If you have never used kohlrabi for a salad you should definitely change that immediately. It’s really good for that ;)
If you want to live a healthy lifestyle it’s always good to take a look at what you eat. If you want to eat better you should consider incorporating more legumes into your diet. A delicious summer salad like this White Jumbo Beans Salad is a good option here. If you cook the beans properly you won’t experience the “side effects” many people fear when eating beans… trust me ;P
Hi, my name is Marc. I'm a graphic designer.
I love my job, but in between I love to bake and try new things in the kitchen. A lot of my friends and colleagues encourage me to bake - for a very simple reason: they get the leftovers - and it seems they like it most of the time ;)
