This salad is fantastic. The bold flavors meld together perfectly for a very satisfying dish. I think it would be perfect for a summer potluck or a side dish for any number of things, like grilled chicken, steak or even shrimp. My favorite way to eat this salad though? Make a batch and eat it stuffed inside a whole wheat pita for lunch all week long.
It’s winter and a fun time to make soup, so I created this recipe on the fly – and it turned out very tasty. It’s best if the vegetables are about 1 – 1 1/2 inch cubed or sliced, all about the same size. This is what makes the soup more rustic in nature, almost stew like.
It’s easy to make and easy to enjoy. Manga!
Being married to a Dutch national and raising three little Dutchies, certain traditions are expected. A Dutch friend gave me this recipe that I converted and tweaked to our preference.
Oliebollen is served on New Year’s Eve (Oudejaarsavond) and you will find street stands selling them during the holiday season. Oliebollen is what our donuts are based on.
So from my house to yours Happy New Year!
New Year! 2011 will be the year to eat more vegetables. Start off your year bright and early with this strata.
Stratas are great because you can make (should make) it a day ahead! Therefore, all you need to do is take it out of the fridge and place it in the oven– breakfast is done!
