Fresh salads with fresh spring vegetables

Overcoming winter requires an increased supply of vitamins, especially vitamin C and minerals.

It is healthiest to supply these vitamins directly from fresh vegetables, so let’s forget about the most well-promoted tablets and look at what is offered to us.

Some vegetables can be eaten on their own, but most vegetables, especially leafy ones, are suitable for salads.

Mimosa Lettuce

It is ideal for your table in spring or summer, when there is plenty of fresh, high-quality salad.


  • 1 lettuce
  • 4 tablespoons of breadcrumbs
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 a smaller lemon
  • 6 spoons of fine vegetable oil, ideally cold pressed
  • salt


  1. Remove the outer leaves from the salad, carefully rinse the hearts and let them drain thoroughly with the stem upwards.
  2. Dry-fry the breadcrumbs in a non-stick pan until golden.
  3. Hard-boil the eggs, cool, peel and cut into centimeter cubes.
  4. Then we wrap them in warm toasted breadcrumbs.
  5. In a bowl, mix the lemon juice, salt and oil with a whisk until a thick dressing is formed.
  6. Cut the hearts of the salad into several pieces or separate them into leaves and tear a little more.
  7. Mix with the dressing and divide into two plates.
  8. Sprinkle the salad on the plates with the prepared eggs.
  9. Serve immediately, because the crispy breadcrumbs will get wet as they stand and the salad will wilt due to the dressing.
