Nettle Salad with Tomatoe Sauce

Print Friendly and PDF I previously gave you a recipe for "Stinging Nettle Puree." If you are fond of nettle I bet you will love this recipe for "nettle salad with tomatoe sauce".


  • 250 gr of stinging nettle
  • 2 middle sized tomatoes, grated
  • 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 1 middle size onion, chopped finely
  • Juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • 1 tablespoon of grape vinegar
  • 1/2 a small cup of olive oil
  • 1 stem of parsley leaves
  • 1 stem of dill leaves
  • Salt
  • A Pair of thin rubber gloves


  1. Remove the leaves of the stinging nettle from the stems with rubber gloves, and wash. Be careful it really does sting!

  2. Put the nettle in hot water and boil for 10-15 minutes. When the nettles can be squashed with a spoon it's cooked.

  3. Put the nettle in a striner and press out the juice with the help of a spoon. Put the nettle in a service plate.

  4. Mix the grated tomatoe, finely chopped onion, crushed garlic, olive oil, vinegar, salt and lemon juice in a seperate bowl.

  5. Pour this mixture over the nettle and add the parsley and dill for decoration.

Afiyet olsun!
