This was a delicious week! I enjoyed all the recipes, immensely.
Feta puff pastry tarts with a pea side salad
I was really pleased with the way this one came out. Sure, mine came out darker than what was pictured, but it wasn’t burned. Just crispy. The flavors were delicious. I love puff pastry and I love feta cheese. I think this would make a great appetizer for a dinner party. Of course, I would make them in much smaller sizes.
I’m back from the states and back to the cooking routine with the help of Vidis Kochtüte
Caesar style kiwi salad
This was an interesting recipe. I love kiwi, so I was quite happy to give this recipe a try. I’ve never made caesar dressing before either and was amazed at how simple it is, though fatty due to all the mayo that went into making it. I was on my own for the majority of the week so a few of these recipes, I had to enjoy on my own. This was one of them. I split the recipe in half for two separate days. I found that the salad was good, but it lacked just a touch of sweetness, which I realize the kiwi was supposed to bring to the dish. Perhaps I should have let them ripen a bit more and they would have been sweeter. The first time I made this salad, I made the pumpernickel croutons they suggested in this recipe. The second time though, I used my own garlic/onion croutons and preferred that a little more. All in all though, a great summer salad.
