German Sausage Salad

One of our absolute favorites. We make this one frequently especially in the Summer time. It is an easy cool dish for hot days with less ingredients.

There are existing different versions but this is our preferred.

German Sausage Salad


– pickles
– onions
– cheese cubes
– sausage (I used baloney but you can use what you like best)
– olive oil
– vinegar
– salt and pepper

– cut everything into little pieces, mix and season

Green Goddess Salad

I finally came around to try the viral Green Goddess salad and I have to admit I was a little dissapointed. Don’t get me wrong, it was good and tasty as well but I had high expectations cause the salad went viral some time ago and those were not met. Somehow I waited for a taste explosion that never came.

I have used @iamafoodblog s recipe and it was easy to follow and tasty as well. Didn’t use the nuts cause I can’t eat them.

I have had a filling lunch for three days. Great salad to make ahead for meal prep or dinner parties.

This is the recipe I have used.

Potatoe Salad

There are thousands of ways to make a potatoe salad but we like it simple with less ingredients and an oil and vinegar finish.


– potatoes (surprise)
– onion
– chives (dried or fresh)
– salt and pepper
– oil and vinegar
– Maggi (a liquid spice I use for a lot of things)

Peel, cut and cook the potatoes until they are soft.
Meanwhile cut the onions. Wait until the potatoes are cooled off a little before you mix everything together. Season and then stir.



Summer Salad Sunday – Gnocchi Salad, Classic Noodle Salad, Watermelon Salad…


I can´t believe that this is already the second batch of salads I am sharing here on my blog. This means that 6 weeks of Summer are already over and I definitely know where the time went but I am still sad that half of our Summer time is gone already.

But let´s just enjoy the last few week along with some delicious homemade salads.


Watermelon Salad

I have never made a watermelon salad before cause I always thought the sweet of the watermelon would taste very strange in combination with spices but let me tell you, the mix of sweet and salty was soooo good I have devoured two full plates😋


– cucumber
– watermelon
– feta cheese
– pine nuts
– arugula salad
– olive oil, salt and pepper

Chop everything and mix it together in a bowl. Don’t forget to roast your pine nuts. Best to eat in two days or it will get too watery.

Trust me it is worth a try cause it’s definitely delicious.


Classic Noodle Salad

Classic Noodle Salad with mayonnaise – This one might contain different ingredients for everyone, but I am sharing how we love it most.


– small noodles
– cheese
– corn
– pickles
– onion
– leberkäse (a german type of sausage – polony would be similar)
– bell peppers
– mayonnaise
– the liquid out of the pickles glass

While the noodles are boiling to be al dente I am cutting up every ingredient into little pieces.

I let the noodles sit a little so they can cool down and then I mix everything together including the mayonnaise and the pickle liquid (start with little and add more if you like – you can’t take it back out) ans stir, stir, stir.

The spiced in the pickle liquid and some some salt are usually enough seasonning – at least for our taste.


Gnocchi Salad

This would definitely be a meal on its own but also works great for BBQ’s or potluck dinner.


– gnocchi (these are like little potatoe dumplings used for pasta dishes)
– pine nuts
– basil leaves
– grated parmesan cheese
– vinegar

Roast the pine nuts in a pan, but be careful cause they can burn real fast.
Cook the gnocchi in hot water. They are ready when they are up on the surface.
Now mix everything together in a bowl. Be careful wuth the vinegar. You can always add more but not take it away.
That’s it 🍴

As always quantities aren’t super important here.
