Lunch in Colmar

Monday on the blog we were walking in France, tiring work, so let’s hop over to Colmar for a bit of lunch.  We ate at the same restaurant as the prior year, sitting outside by the river (Little Venice).  If you’d like to see a number of photos of places we saw and read a bit about them, click here (not my photos.)  It was hot, so we opted for salad and a glass of wine, while watching flat-bottomed boats filled with tourists pole by and swans glide past.

Colmar was part of France, then Germany, back to France, again to Germany, and finally ended up on the eastern edge of France.  Consequently, the architecture and food represent both cultures.  We opted for a lighter, more French lunch this visit.

This delicious, refreshing, filling, and beautifully presented salad had foie gras (front left), prosciutto (middle left), smoked salmon (hiding on the right), lots of beautifully cool, thinly-sliced veggies, and was topped with a crisp breadstick.  It was just what I needed before hitting the streets for photos of doors and other delights.  I would order it again in an instant!

    That lunch looks very good. I can’t imagine flipping from country to country.

    • The lunch was delicious! That flipping happened in other parts of Europe as well. But as German and France share a border, it happened rather easily during all those wars.

  3. I think that the lunch choices might have a lot to do with the flipping back and forth between countries. Yum!

  4. It’s a pretty salad with all the colors and sound delicious too.

  5. Yummy photo, Janet. 😍

  6. Tough duty to be in France with family, but someone has to do it, right? 🙂 Have a great time.
