One of my favorite childhood salads in Germany was Feldsalat (Lamb's lettuce or mâche) with my Mom's wonderful jogurt dressing. I was really delighted, when I discovered a reliable source for mâche here in California.

Here is the recipe for the dressing and the salad:


  • ½ lb / 250g mâche / lamb's lettuce, cleaned
  • ½ cup / 125ml yogurt or kefir
  • ½ clove garlic, minced
  • ½ tsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp creamed horseradish
  • ½ tsp salt (or to taste)
  • ½ tsp sugar (or to taste)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp parsley, chopped
  • ½ tbsp chives, chopped
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • radish as garnish (optional)


  1. Combine yogurt or kefir, garlic, mustard, horseradish, salt, sugar, olive oil, and vinegar. Mix well.
  2. Stir in parsley and chives and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.
  3. Toss lamb's lettuce with dressing. Serve.
  4. Optional: Thinly slice radishes and use as garnish.
