After two years and dozens of seasonal recipes with only five ingredients, from our own chef Andrea Tegel, we are stopping this section.

We conclude with the best December recipes.

This week:

  • Preparation time: 15 minutes

  • Type of meal: starter

  • Number of people: 4

This starter is not only Christmasy because of the color combination of red and green, but also because of the shape.

Arranging the salad in a ring on the plates makes it look like a Christmas wreath.

A tip to remove the seeds from the pomegranate: cut the pomegranate in half and take a large bowl.

Hold one of the pomegranate halves with the cutting edge above the bowl and tap the back firmly with a ladle.

The seeds will now come off by themselves and fall into the bowl.

Continue until all seeds have come loose.

You can drink the pomegranate juice or use it in the dressing.

You need these five ingredients

  • 200 grams curly flake length

  • 200 grams of smoked salmon

  • 1 avocado

  • ½ pomegranate (seeds)

  • 2 tablespoons of honey mustard dressing

  • * Vegetarian alternative: replace the salmon with thinly sliced ​​cooked beetroot

    Five ingredients for a Christmas starter.

    This is how you prepare the starter

  • Take four large plates and arrange the curly flake length on top in the form of Christmas wreaths.

    To make this easier, you can place an upside-down dish in the center of the plates (remove it just before serving).

  • Halve the avocado and cut into slices.

    Divide over the salads.

    Remove the slices of smoked salmon and cut them into smaller slices if necessary.

    Shape this into florets and place them between the slices of avocado.

  • Dilute the honey mustard dressing with a little splash of water to get the consistency of a dressing.

    Drizzle the dressing over the salads.

  • Sprinkle the pomegranate seeds over the salads.

    Remove the dishes from the plates (if you used them).

  • Enjoy your meal!
