finally it seems like sommer, pardon, summer has come..the days are sunny and hot..actually way to hot for cooking..so i love to search the markets for nice things which get along with the veggies, spices and herb i grow in the garden..so today i found a lot stuff to make the perfect hot day lunch..a salad..okay..salad dont sounds too exiting but i just made a wild mixture of red lollo rosso salad, rucola / rocket salad and added a handfull of small prawns...fresh figgs, garden raspberries, some greek cheese which i crumbled into the dressing i made of rasberry vinegar,lime juice, grape seed oil (it has the perfect fruity taste to get along with the fruits in the salad), some dijon moustart, sea salt, fresh groundet pepper and some lime peel ..which i mixed all while i dried cherry tomatos in the oven ..broke a pommegranate open to add his seeds into the salad bowl and mixed it all together with a few fresh cocktail tomatos...plus a little bowl of overnight marinated duck carpacio with caper apples..not sure if that their name in english..but they are delicious anyways..no matter what their name is...so..if its hot there where you are..you know what to have today....


ps: usually i dont tend to freeze my table silver..but i thought it might be a cool picture to say its a "the kitchen stays cold today" day

pps: do i sound like martha stewad on crack????

That salad sounds lovely! It must be so cool to grow your own food...I would love to have a garden like that.

I liked the picture of frozen silverware too. :)
