Summer Kitchen

in Walnut Dressing

By Ralph Kratzer

SummerNow, as temperatures rise and rise, I interrupt my series “Cypriot Recipes” and and start with a series of recipes that I call “Summer Kitchen”.

The important thing is that your time in the kitchen is limited to a minimum and the dishes are light and easy to digest.

Enjoy the summer and happy cooking!
