Russian  Potato Salad

Russian Potato Salad

I have always loved potatoes in different form. Growing up, my mom would add potatoes to green vegetable dish because we wouldn’t eat the vegetable otherwise. With potatoes, we were willing to give that a try and eventually we started liking some of those vegetables san potatoes. Good trick ha! I do this with my family too. After being in US for as long as I have, I get the impression that potato salad is must have for BBQ events and picnic during summer. Most potato salad I have tasted have mayo, pickles and some common condiments across the board. In most salad, potatoes are left in chunkier cut with the exception of my mother-in-law’s potato salad which we all love in our family so much. Apparently, Russian potato salad takes the liberty to expand on the basic base by adding chopped vegetables and meat (such as cubed ham or turkey if you like).I stayed with the vegetables. Ingredients 2 Russet potatoes 5 baby carrots chopped 1/4 cup chopped green beans 1/3 cup frozen peas...

Lentil Salad

Lentil Salad

Sitting around the dinner table and sharing a grub with good friends is one of my favorite way to spend the nice afternoon or any time of the day. It ended up being much grander then what I had anticipated. I heard the encouraging story of obedience .   I was also privileged to hear absolutely phenomenal, knock your socks off, crying tears, 180 degree turn kind of story of transformation and redemption around the table during that hour. I cannot share the story here but I am touched beyond words by what one my friend has gone through and what the LOVE OF CHRIST has done in her life. My desire to proclaim the gospel ever so gladly has only been strengthened after her story. “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.” ~ Romans 1:16 Conversation flowed with little bites of sweet potato chips, lentil chips, dips,...

Algerian Fruit Medley (Chalda Fakya)

Algerian Fruit Medley (Chalda Fakya)

We are in the second ‘A’ country and it is: Algeria. Yay!! This country has been in mind lately.Thanks to Noel Piper talking about Lilias Trotter in her book “Faithful Women and their Extraordinary God.” As I continue to research on Algeria, one people group which I never knew until know is sticking out to me: Berbers of Algeria. ‘Berbers’, this name was given by early Romans who came to the country centuries ago, to the native Algerians of that time. Berbers have been historically nomads and preferred themselves to be called “Imazighen” (Free people).Islam is the religion of the land however Christianity had blossomed here centuries ago. Berbers have identified themselves with Islam, old rooted tradition as well as Christianity over the time. Many Kabyle Berbers are seeking Christ today. Pray that Christ will reveal Himself to Kabyle Berbers. Pray that Bible will be accessible to them in their language. Pray those evangelists who are reaching to this people group will be strengthening. As i was looking for...

Greek Salad

Greek Salad

Have you heard the phrase “Cool as a Cucumber‘?  Not sure how this phrase came about but I can tell you that when I think of summer snack,I think of cucumbers. I think of train trips, bus stops and a man carrying basket full of cucumbers and ‘Kakdi“(‘Armenian Cucumber’) in hot Indian summer.On demand, it will be peeled, sliced and served with sprinkle of black salt  to you. I love cucumbers. My papa always bought it during summer. It is an easy, quick snack. I like the crunch and coolness of the cucumbers. Fine Black salt, a condiment, goes very well with it.Try it sometime 🙂 I always look for a way to eat cucumbers. So what will be more perfect then Greek Salad?Greek Salad has tomatoes, onion, cucumbers tossed with feta and dressing. You can add lettuce to it 🙂 I used Pioneer Woman’s recipe for guideline.I made more dressing then i needed,so i can just add it when i need it for next batch. I was bit hesitant to...

Panzanella Salad

Panzanella Salad

Do you have a favorite salad? I have come to like some.Here is a thing,for my husband,salad without lettuce or green mix is not salad.For me,i will be more then happy to have salad with no lettuce/green mix .You are thinking,then what is left in it? Don’t get me wrong,i have come to adapt lettuce and actually even enjoy it.Olive garden salad and soup anyone? Lettuce was added to my vocabulary after making trip to US grocery market.My first impression of it was ,crunchy breed of cabbage.So i was very puzzled to see it being served in ‘salad’ bar.Needless to say,i stayed away from it as long as i could. So when i came across Panzanella salad,i was willing to try it rightway.Why?It has all the elements of salad minus the lettuce(or it is optional),that i grew up with. Panzanella is Italian salad.A way to use the day old crusty bread.Bread cubes are tossed with onion,cucumber,tomatoes with generous drizzle of oilve oil,drops of lemon juice and fresh herbs.I can...

Pasta Salad

Pasta Salad

This past week have been very busy for us.End of the school year and life as it happens.One of my go to meal to cook during those busy day is pasta salad.I have made this time and again.This is also my go-to meal to take for pot luck  and i am in a time crunch.It is time tested and always well liked. You can use any kind of pasta,though i prefer whole wheat rotini or farfalle as suppose to penne or elbow.I feel that veggie mix clings better to the twisted shapes. You can add any grilled meat/shrimp to it. I coarse blend the artichokes and sun dried tomatoes,so my kids don’t pick out the veggies.I am very generous with sun dried tomatoes 🙂 My choice of vegetable have been asparagus,zucchini and broccoli.You can pick and choose yours. I love to sprinkle the salad with feta cheese on mine,my family is not too fond of it 🙂 .I think shaved Parmesan and couple of toasted pine nuts would be great. This is...
