It already became a tradition that a dear friend of mine and food-lover invites for her birthday summer party to a very old and magical property in the east of France. Those parties are always planned to perfection. Flower and candle decoration, a wide range of vegan, gluten free and regular cakes and sweets, colorful salads, homemade bread… I could go on here for hours. Sometimes, I wonder why Lena is no professional event manager (yet). It is truly impressive how she enjoys organizing and preparing events like that (very far in advance ;) ).
Last year, I contributed this vegan black bean cake by the inspiring greenkitchenstories. This year, I prepared a messy salad with antipasti.
I combined leafy greens with olives, sundried tomatoes, artichokes, cashew nuts and fresh raddish. Sprinkled with lemon juice, this salad was a great addition to this epic summer night.
