I'm so much into salads, especially during the hot summer months. And the best thing about it: you can make salads out of pretty much everything ;)
Lately I made a "fridge clean out" variation with my favorite gluten free bean noodles (made out of edamame, the noodles are very low in fat and rich in proteins).
I combined the noodles with farm fresh champignons (from my auntie), fresh spring potatoes (finally there are Swiss ones) and a not so regional avocado (hello- can we please live in Los Angeles again?)...I added some spicy cashew nuts (by Pakka) and nope it did not affect my baby at all, I guess he'll like spicy food as much as his mommy.
The salad goes perfectly fine as bbq side dish, with a cheese platter or just like that.
Wishing you all a very nice summer evening!

Hi, We are based in Oberhasli, Zurich, and are looking for somebody to sit a few hours with our cat. We are away between Thursday 14/04 and Monday 19/04, and don't want him to get lonely. If you would like to pay our cat company while reading a book, doing your home office, or would like to stay overnight, we and Ninja would be very happy.
