Fresh and crunchy salad

Whenever we have salad for dinner – or as a side- I try not to make the same old tomato, lettuce and cucumber mix. I want to make something different, fresh and a bit creative. And this salad is a new favorite to my salad repertoire. I found the recipe here the other week when I was surfing other blogs and it looked so delicious that I made it that  evening as a side to chicken. I love that is has a lot of crunch, freshness and still a bit of creaminess from the avocado.  Ingredients

Fresh February salad with apples, pomegranate and citrus dressing

This past Friday we had friends over for dinner. We kept it kind of light and made salmon with two salads; Sillas’ favorite quinoa salad and a new salad from a new cookbook I bought recently. It’s a Danish book called ‘amazing salads – all year round’ and it really is amazing. Full of great salad and side dish recipes. I especially love that there are recipes for fall and winter, because I usually can’t figure out what to put in a salad. The salad I chose for our dinner is a February salad called Gils Salad. Its inspired by a salad the author tried at a Israeli restaurant in Tel-Aviv. Its quite simple, but very fresh and tasty. And...

January chopped salad with pesto chicken

This salad is very very simple, easy and full of good veggies. The pesto works really well with the chicken and adding warm chicken to a salad with mozzarella is just so tasty. I can eat this salad any time of the year, but I think that it woks really well here in January after having eaten all of the rich and, well, fatty food over the holidays. Its very fresh, crunchy and fulfilling. I brought a portion with me for lunch at the office today, and the salad is just as good served cold the next day.

Healthy salmon wraps

I made these salmon wraps a while back, but have forgotten to put them up here on Ambrosia. I found the recipe in the cookbook ‘Lækkermad’ (that’s Danish for delicious  food) It’s a tasty and healthy dish full of good vitamins and minerals. I might swap the tortilla for Vietnamese rice paper, next time I make this dish. I think it will work better. But that’s not to say that this way wasn’t good though, each to their own. Ingredients;

Beetroot and carrot salad

  I have really started to enjoy beetroot salad – never thought that I would say that. It is super easy to make, very healthy and with relatively few ingredients:

Beetroot – cabbage salad

  I am really happy with my ‘Lækkermad 80/20’ cookbook. There are so many good salads and delicious marinades and dressings. For lunch today I decided to make Beetroot-cabbage-salad with a lovley lemon / olive oil dressing. A good and fresh salad.
