Carrots with nut crumble, dill oil and yoghurt

Carrots with nut crumble, dill oil and yoghurt

This – in the broadest sense – carrot salad can also be perfectly prepared for guests and served, for example, as part of an oriental menu. The crumble is easy to prepare. It stays fresh for at least a week in an airtight container. Incidentally, it also tastes great over ice cream or any other salad. The carrots can also be prepared well in advance, so when the guests arrive, all you have to do is arrange them.

Even on hot summer days, the carrots with nut crumble on yoghurt are absolutely delicious!

The halibut, which is a flounder

The name is misleading, because strictly speaking, the white halibut is a flounder, because he is right-eyed. His body is brown-black and white on the “blind side”, hence the name. It can become incredible four meters long. Ours was not that big…
