Wash & peel carrots & apples. Grate the carrots, cut apples in four pieces, cover with lemon juice, slice well. Chop the walnuts. Place everything into a serving bowl, mix up well. Add a dressing & raisins. Serve instantly.

Summer Radish Fresh Salad Ingredients:

Wash  the radish, the carrot & the apple well, peel them off, wash again & grate. Mix up well in a serving bowl. Mince the garlic, add into the salad together with the lemon zest. Squeeze the lemon juice, mix up again & serve.

Sauerkraut & Leek Salad Ingredients:

Sauerkraut – 250 gr., leek – 250 gr., sour cream/mayonnaise/yogurt – 1/2 glass, cumin seeds/ dill seeds – 1 tbs., some salt & pepper.

    I love sauerkraut (and mashed potatoes). We make our own fermented sauerkraut, but I’ve never used it in a salad. Leeks sound good, yes, and why not peppers, peppadews and fresh paprika as well? With mayonnaise or yoghurt. I also love carrots but prefer to them cooked, in stews or soup.
