Delicious Summer Food

In the summer when it is really hot I seldom like to cook dinner. We all feel that fresh cool food is way more appropriate. It's the time for delicious salads!

The family favorite is Caprese - tomatoes, mozzarella, basil leaves, olive oil, aceto balsamico, salt and pepper, and a good ciabatta to go with it, accompanied by a refreshing rosé wine - ah, that's the life!

Caprese prepared by Kaefer

We also love to create Southwestern style salads with tomatoes, some greens, onions, cucumber, avocado, some spicy chicken, a dollop of sour cream and tortilla strips or garlic bread.


And sometimes the Geek shows his artistic side with some radishes...


What is your favorite food to eat for dinner on hot summer days?

That top salad looks spectacular! And your young daughter did that? Wow! I AM impressed!

Too close to bedtime for me to think of a favorite. Tonight was left over lamb rewarmed and broiled pineapple slices. Nummy.

These days - in the midst of this extreme and never-ending heat - its cold gazpacho that I've been loving and eating most of all.

Keafer has an eye for presentation, huh! How marvellous. I nly like Mozzarella cooked - but we eat a version of this I do with Feta. I love a salad of lettuce, cucumber tomato, boiled egg, tuna fish and hot new potatoes...yum. I love summer food! Fruit salads...mmmm.

Such mouth-watering photos, and someone has a future in a profesional kitchen! Favourite food? In summer, not much beats a thick slice of homemade bread, a hunk of good cheese and a sweet organic apple. :)

Hmmm sieht das alles lecker aus! Tomaten mit Mozzarella und Basilikum mag ich im Sommer auch sehr gerne. Wenn es heiß ist, mache ich immer einen gemischten Salat mit allem möglichem drin. Mit Thunfisch, Tomaten, Schafskäse, Schinken, Gurken, Oliven und dazu frisches Baguette.
