week 10 with Vidis Kochtüte

This was a delicious week! I enjoyed all the recipes, immensely.

Feta puff pastry tarts with a pea side salad

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.

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.
