Melon - Rucola Salad for Warm Summer Days

Melon - Rucola Salad for Warm Summer Days

We start colorful and healthy into the warm season.

Preferably with lots of fresh fruits and vegetables and fragrant herbs from our garden or the forest.

We hope you enjoy the warm sunshine as much as we do.

The season of mild evenings with relaxing summer parties and barbecues started again.

For these are often enjoyed with loads of food, we would also like to show you a real quick and delicious salad variant.

For those who want to enjoy fresh food, it's the perfect start into the summer.

If you eat salad on a daily basis, you've probably come to the point, when you are sometimes a little tired of all the greens and do not know how to make plants and fruits enjoyable and tasty on your plate.

Then it is always good to try something else and give it a little change.

Vegetables or fruits can, for example, be cut in different ways.

You can use the spiralizer for long veggie spaghetti, cut very thin or thick slices or you could use a small melon baller for some fun.

Sometimes you have to develop a little bit of creativity to present food in an appealing way.


Since we like it colorful, we often combine bright colors.

Melon and rucola is our preferred summer combination.
Green and red, bitter and sweet - a great duo.


Our kids loved the idea with the little fruit balls and the salad was gone within minutes.
With the leftovers of the hollowed-out melons, we will have a delicious smoothie this afternoon.

Have a nice and colorful start in the week!

What is your favorite summer salad?
We would love to hear from you.
