Summer is green salad time. In the time of June/July we ate 12 heads of lettuce, each enough for two meals! We harvested that much from our field. We couldn’t bear any green salad the last weeks. But using the same dressing every time doesn’t make it any better. In Nicole Stich’s book Geschenkideen aus der Küche (“gift ideas from the kitchen” in English) we came across a recipe for an orange-honey-dressing. Fruity-sweet-summery. A real bummer and since then our favourite dressing!

I do like very much, that you have everything at home for that dressing and you don’t need to go shopping. Nicky recommends freshly squeezed orange juice, but I just use the one from the bottle, since that is what we have at home regularly unlike oranges and it still tastes awesome.

We have fresh ripe lettuce again on our field, so a glass of this dressing is already sitting in our fridge!

The given amount is more than you need for one salad. I make that much and store the rest in the fridge. It’s enough for 2-3 salads for 2 persons as a large side dish.

    Hmmm, die Salatsoße muss ich unbedingt mal ausprobieren! =)
    Da wir gartenbedingt momentan eigentlich auch fast jeden Tag Salat essen, muss echt mal ne gaaaaanz andere Soße her =)

  2. Oh, die sieht ja fein aus und macht Appetit. Die probier ich auch mal, denn unsere zweite Salaternte dieses Jahr beginnt bald.
