German Easy Salad Recipes

Easy German salad recipes. These delicious recipes can be whipped up in no time and are great served with grilled meat, chicken and fish.

Not just for summer, my mixture of green, chopped salads can be served at any time of year. I tend to serve a fresh green salad with every meal.

There is a refreshing one using tomatoes and a German cucumber salad served in a great dressing. One of my favourites is Feldsalat (lambs lettuce). It is found on all the menus in Germany and tastes just fab in a tangy dressing. This is unfortunately a winter salad so you have to make the most of it when it's in season.

I do think a great salad dressing makes all the difference. You probably have your own recipe but one of our tried and tested dressings is: Olive oil, balsamic vinegar, lemon juice and honey. Just whisk the ingredients together and hey presto, a tasty dressing. In fact it is my son's favourite. In fact whip up a batch in a jam jar and keep it in the fridge.

If your kids aren't into healthy eating, try out my German carrot salat (Karottensalat), my kids absolutely love it even though they are not huge fans of carrots. It is a great hit with kids and adults alike and graces every barbecue!

What's great about them is that they are so versatile and can incorporate any number of vegetables, sometimes meat or seafood. They are a great way of adding variety to our meals, part of our 5 a day, or sometimes just using up what you have in the fridge. So conjure one up today!

And guess what, you'll also find a great German potato salad recipe which comes from my German mother-in-law. This really is authentic and it is so easy to prepare. Great to take to the school fete, a football tournament or a barbecue.My british family are now in love with it too!
