My husband bought some crazy salad cutlery to me a month ago. True disco cutlery in orange and glitter! Of course I had to think of something disco-like to go with it … It became a wonderful disco salad with buckwheat, tarragon and apples.

The other evening I wanted to sneak up something fast for dinner. It became a delicious salad with quinoa, fresh figs and mustard dressing!
Today, I make a salad with stardust! I review the exciting cookbook Malmö cooking by head chef Titti Qvarnström. From the book I make a really cool salad with beetroot, pickled tomatoes and roasted olives.

This must be one of the easiest recipes I have made. But also one of the most delicious! Perfect to have ready in the refrigerator. Eat it just as it is or combine it with a salad, an omelet, a BBQ, fish or meat. The marinated artichoke heart with preserved lemons are fantastic with whatever!

Please call me a nerd if you like. Today I give you five vegan salad toppings that makes your heart sing!
