Delicious Italian Salad

This is the recipe of one of my favourite salads of all times (although there are a couple that are very close – oh yes, chicken-mango-grape salad, I’m talking about you). It is Italy on a plate! It has tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, parma ham, some pasta (for those of you not afraid of carbs – I am most certainly not, so bring it oon). For fans of these ingredients, this salad is definitely something for you.

Servings: 2 (as a main dish for two very hungry people)


  • 150g arugula
  • 100g basil, fresh
  • 80g parma ham
  • 40g pine nuts
  • 1 spring onion
  • 1 mozzarella
  • 2 tomatoes (or one handful of cherry tomatoes)
  • 100g pasta

For the dressing

  • 2 tbsp. vinegar (a fruity sort, I’m using an absolutely divine apricot vinegar, other fruits will do as well)
  • 3 tbsp. oil
  • 1/2 tsp. mustard
  • 1 tsp. honey or sugar
  • Salt and pepper


Throwing together a salad is fairy simple, and I suppose a step-by-step description is not really necessary. Boil pasta, fry pine nuts (watch them carefully, and toss regularly, they are sly), wash and cut everything, mix dressing, throw everything together and serve with baguette. Now enjoy!

Hi guys! I'm a Norwegian girl living in Germany who loves to cook and bake. In this blog I will post pictures (all mine!) and recipes of the stuff that I make. I use it as an inspiration to try out new things, and maybe I can inspire others as well :-)
