Opening the fridge on boxing day and wondering what on earth to do with all that leftover turkey is as much of a Christmas tradition as the big dinner itself! It is one of the best parts of Christmas where you spend the next few days simply enjoying leftovers and fridge raids. It makes the effort of cooking the big meal on Christmas day last for a few extra days with mininal stress. For me, Christmas is all about the leftovers and there isn’t a more perfect time for us to have a fridge full of food ready to go….
I have noticed that duck is popping up on a few menus lately. Alsatian restaurant Gugelhof is serving up a winter treat of duck and red cabbage and Oderquelle well know for it’s sturdy German food has duck with Spätzle on the menu – two of my favourite dishes that have a real winter feel to them….
The weather feels more like January than the end of March. The weather is still cold and we have plenty of snow over here in Berlin. So much for tomorrow being the first day of spring.
This salad is vibrant, colourful and with a hint of spring meaning that you don’t need to let the cold weather get in the way of that spring feeling.
Easy to make, light and refreshing makes this a perfect mid week supper….
