My all time favourite is carrot salad... It's grated carrots, sugar, lemon and/or orange juice, water, eventually grated apple. Play around with the ingredients until you like the taste...


And my original Czech blog, nowadays updated VERY occasionally...

Mixed Greens with Mango dressing!!
awesome because it tastes good and is good for you, high in vitamin A, C, and E...

(For a big bowl)

1 head of red or green leaf lettuce
 (torn up into bitesize pieces makes about 10 cups)
2 1/2 cups of arugula (trimmed and torn)
1/2 c. watercress leaves (so good)
3 tbsp. fresh basil
3 mangos
1/4 c. rice vinegar
3 tbsp. olive oil (or any cooking oil, olive oil just tastes better)
2 tbsp. honey
1 tsp. fresh mint
1 tsp. fresh chives
salt & black pepper ( a pinch)

in a big bowl combine all your greens and the basil, set it aside.
pit peel and slice up your mangoes, chop up enough to make about 1/2 a cup and set aside the rest of your mangoes.

For the dressing, combine the 1/2 c. of chopped mangoes, the vinegar, oil, honey, mint, and chives in a blender until smooth. add your salt and pepper (to taste) and drizzle half your dressing over your greens, toss and top with the rest of your mango slices and the rest of your dressing..

you can add a little pepper if you like

Kidney beans (white or red)
Halved cherry tomatoes run under the broiler w/salt and pepper
fresh basil leaves
Chopped onion
Balsamic vinegar and olive oil

Feta is nice with it if you have it! I like this room tem


Her dirty paws and furry coat,
She ran down the forest slope.
The forest of talking trees,
They used to sing about the birds and the bees.
The bees had declared a war,
The sky wasn't big enough for them all.
