Each of us has their own favourite types of apples. Some like them tender and sweet and some like apples which are hard to bite into. To this day I remember the taste of the apples which grew in our garden. Many of these old types aren't there anymore. Now there are new ones, but I remember with affection the September packed lunch when I got a sandwich with a crunchy roll and a garden-fresh apple.


We like hard juicy and sweet apples. Such apples are excellent for the salad which I would like to recommend today. The recipe for this dish comes from the monthly "Moje gotowanie" ("My cooking").


Ingredients (for 2 people)
half a butternut pumpkin
4 tablespoons of olive oil
1 tablespoon of chopped chili pepper
1 tablespoon of rosemary
2 apples
1 fennel
2 fistfuls of mixed nuts
4 tablespoons of chopped parsley
3 tablespoons of lemon juice
salt and pepper

Once we waited for the first early vegetables as impatiently as for tomatoes or strawberries. Now we can buy fresh radishes all year round, so they aren't anything special. However, we like them. We like them in cottage cheese with chives and also as an ingredient of cold soup or spring salads.


Today I would like to share with you the recipe for an excellent snack with... hot radishes. We know that radishes are very yummy when we bake them with our favourite herbs in the oven. They are excellent just after baking. But if we add a bit of parsley, lemon and roasted almond flakes it could turn into an unusually easy salad.


Ingredients (for 2 people)
bunch of radishes
2 tablespoons of olive oil
half a teaspoon of lemon juice and zest
1 teaspoon of chopped parsley
chili pepper
3 tablespoons of roasted almond flakes
salt and pepper

The pumpkin is the kitchen queen of the autumn. In October and November it is often in my kitchen. I like its gentle taste and beautiful colour. This year, as well as traditional pumpkin soup with coconut milk which I have prepared a few times, I have been making pumpkin salads. These colourful, yummy dishes are an excellent autumn proposal for a light dinner or supper. If you would like to prepare something richer, add some pieces of roast meat to the salad. I assure you that your associates will envy the contents of your lunch box.


Today I would like to share with you the recipe for an autumn salad with pumpkin, quinoa, spinach and pomegranate. I add also feta cheese and my favourite roast cashew nuts. Simple vinaigrette is the finishing touch for the yummy dish.


Ingredients
half a butternut pumpkin
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1 tablespoon of chopped rosemary
salt and pepper
half a pomegranate
100g of feta cheese
100g of quinoa
200g of spinach
a fistful of cashew nuts
1 tablespoon of butter

Sometimes in salads it's a case of the fewer ingredients the better. Today I would like to share with you the recipe for a grand, simple and colourful salad. The main ingredient is green beans. You can use ordinary green beans. Because of the fact that my husband did the shopping, I had to use 'mammoth' green beans. In fact the only difference is the width of the pods. Green beans are a rich source of folic acid and fibre. They are light and have a low glycaemic index, so they are recommended for people suffering from diabetes. Nuts are an interesting ingredient of this salad – use your favourite nuts. The second ingredients is a red onion. Pickle it in lemon juice and maple syrup. You can use the pickle as an ingredient of the sauce for the salad.


Ingredients
0.5 kg of green beans
100g of raspberries
100g of feta cheese
1 small red onion
4 tablespoons of lemon juice
3 tablespoons of maple syrup
2 tablespoons of olive oil
a fistful of cashew nuts
parsley and peppermint leaves

When in the summer French beans are on the market stands and the price isn't too high, this vegetable is often on our plates. After the initial period of fascination, when we eat everything to the last bean, there comes a time when we are fed up with them. Then it's time for salads.


Salads are an excellent way to use up leftovers. Today I would like to share with you the recipe for a salad with yellow French beans. The fresh cucumber, chili pepper, nectarine and smoked trout tasted great and looked beautiful on our plates with the French beans. I prepared a honey-lemon dip and ... after a while there wasn't any sign of the French beans.


Ingredients
cooked French beans
lettuce leaves
150g of smoked trout
1 nectarine
2 small fresh cucumbers
half a chilli pepper
a fistful of cashew nuts
dip
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1 tablespoon of water
1 tablespoon of honey
2 tablespoons of lemon juice
