Striftari Salad – Σαλάτα απο Στριφτάρι

6 comments Jun 29th, 2010 | By | Category: Recipes, Salads and Dressings

The Striftari is a Greek noodle. It is often served as salad rather than a regular pasta dish. You can find Striftaria with all sorts of flavors. Mine were seasoned with spinach an garlic, which developed a wonderful scent while boiling them.

Preparation time: 5 minutes

cooking time: 5 minutes

difficulty: easy


  • 200 gram Striftaria
  • 1 zucchini
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 red pepper
  • a few drops of lemon juice
  • some olive oil
  • herbal salt
  • pepper


Bring water to boil in a pot. Use a small pot and put as little water as possible. Too much water makes them loose some of the aroma. Drain the cooked pasta after boiling for 5 minutes.

Shred the zucchini and the carrot into a bowl. Chop up the red pepper and add to the bowl.

Mix oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a small bowl.

Add the drained noodles to the veggies. Pour the oil-sauce into the bowl and mix well. Serve the salad slightly warm.

Wasser zum Kochen bringen. Verwenden Sie dazu einen möglichst kleinen Topf. Die Striftaria sollten gerade darin Platz haben. Das Wasser sollte die Striftaria gerade bedecken. Kochen Sie die Nudeln für 5 Minuten.

Die Karotte und Zucchini in eine Schüssel raspeln. Die Paprika waschen und in Streifen schneiden, in die Schüssel geben. In einer Tasse Öl, Zitrone, Salz und Pfeffer anrühren.

Die Nudeln abgießen und zu den Gemüsen geben. Mit der Sauce mischen und lauwarm servieren.
