Hi guys,

we already celebrated our last BBQ for this Summer. All good things have come to an end at some point, am I right? So there are going to be lots of fall inspired, mainly pumpkin inspired recipes on the blog very soon.

But for today I have another delicious and not so common salad idea for you. A gnocchi salad. For everyone who doesn´t know what Gnocchi are. They are small and round little dumplings make from mainly potatoes and some other ingredients. Gnocchi are and Italian specialty and very popular in Germany, probably like Spaghetti.

But for this type of salad I need them cooled down or at least not as hot as fresh.
The other ingredients are:
 – 1/3 cup pine nuts
– several leaves of basil
– parmesan cheese (grated)
– white balsamic 
– one package of Gnocchi (meassures 250 gr.)
– boil the Gnocchi in hot water (turn down the heat after it cooked up once) until they swim on the surface, only takes them about ten minutes as they are sold precooked

– let them cool down or the parmesan cheese is melting right away and you have one big chunk and no salad

– while the Gnocchi are cooling, brown the pine nuts in a pan (don´t add an oil or fat you won´t need it), be sure to wait at the pan as they get brown in the blink of an eye and then burn

– mix the Gnocchi, parmesan cheese, white balsamic (be careful by adding, I don´t have a meassurement cause I just add as much that the ingredients don´t stick together) and pine nuts in a big bowl

– add the basil leaves (I don´t chop them but you can do whatever you like)

– I served it with the BBQ this time but it is also delicious with a sandwich or a bagel or even fish

Are you still loving your outdoor BBQ´s or are you also longer for soups and casseroles?

Thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.
