Flickr Photo Recipe: Faruk’s healthy salad (1/18)

I’ve mentioned my salads to many people, and since plenty of people have asked for the recipe I decided to document the making of my salad tonight, and do a Flickr Photo Recipe.

First, let’s be clear about this: there is nothing special about this salad. It’s all very straightforward, basic salad making. However, it’s a much more interesting and tasty salad than just some lettuce, cucumber and olive oil tossed together, which is what a lot of people tend to do because it’s quick and easy.

Making a good but simple salad isn’t difficult, and I’ll show you just how to create a salad great for serving to guests in very little time. Again, there is no special skill involved, so anyone can do this.

The ingredients:
– baby leaf salad
– crispy mixed leaf salad
– curly parsley
– chives
– salad onions
– green olives
– one or two sweet peppers
– balsamic vinegar
– white wine vinegar
– olive oil

Optionally, you can add if you wish:
– one or two tomatoes
– Italian herb seasoning

Note that the amounts I’ve purchased (and pictured above) are good for two servings of 2-3 people. I often make these bowls to serve as a full meal for myself, so if you’re like that, note that about half of all of this will be good for one full one-person meal.

Also note that it is very important to get quality ingredients. Choose carefully when you buy them: check that there are no discolored/brown leaves in the salad bags or on the parsley; make sure the chives and salad onions look fresh and dark green; choose a cucumber and sweet peppers that feel firm when you slightly squeeze them. For the olives, I recommend Turkish or Spanish olives. Get pitted olives without any special treatment or additions.

Alright, now let’s get started!

So here is one recipe (there are 1000 others).

1. Butter a muffin baking-tin and put it into the fridge

2. preheat the oven at 180-200° C

3. Beat an egg until it’s foamy and then add 1 package vanilla sugar
and honey as you like (don’t know the exact amount, just do as you think 🙂
Also add 200 g yogurt and mix everything together.

4. Take 200g flour and 3/4 package of baking powder and mix it together.

5. Take 3/4 bar of chocolate (like Milka) and hack/cut it in pieces. Add to the flour

6. Add the flour mix to the egg cream and stir just until it’s roughly mixed.

7. Take the baking-tin out of the fridge and fill each hole 3/4 of it’s size.

8. Put into the oven and let it about 20 mins bake (until they are brown).

At the end put powdered sugar on top of it.

(Hope I haven’t forgotten something 🙂

this is what happens when you try to make potatoes from an old family recipe at 6 am
Image by erinblatzer
In a bowl that’s too small.
With 2 lbs too many potatoes.
And not enough cream cheese.


But the potatoes, however, are delicious.

And if you would like to try (I recommend it, totally, if not at 6 am), here’s the recipe:

5 lbs potatoes, peeled and diced
1 cup sour creme
8 oz creme cheese
2 tbs butter
1/4 tbs pepper
2 tsp onion salt (not onion powder -this is actually important)
parmesan cheese (the powdered stuff – we’re not fancy here.)

Boil the potatoes and mash them with all the ingredients (except the cheese). Once its mixed well, spread the parmesan cheese on the top, with some extra pats of butter.

(And if you’re me, spend an hour cleaning up).

Heating them takes *forever* so I recommend making them right before you’re ready to eat.

Then – voila! Delicious.
