Greens Combo Salad courtesy of koolkosherkitchen
On one of my visits to sunny Georgia (a country, not a state), I saw two salads on the table crowded with many unique vegetable creations. These two, however, looked very similar to each other, but different colors. One was completely green. The other – oh, the other! – it was wonderfully green and red and purple. Both were flecked with crushed walnuts, as are many other Georgian dishes, and garnished with lots of dill. Having waited out the obligatory twenty-minute toast in honor of visiting journalists (i.e. my cameraman and myself), I politely inquired.

Perfect Kale Salad courtesy of koolkosherkitchen
A nutritionist friend once told me that perfect food had to combine four flavors: sweet, sour, salty, and spicy. “Take, for example, simple kale,” she said… and her phone rang. She had to leave urgently, to consult someone who, apparently, haven’t learned all the principles of perfect food yet.

Mangold Pasta – Feel Like a Roman courtesy of koolkosherkitchen
I like browsing through recipes online, especially Russian and Ukrainian ones where I sometimes derive comfort from finding old favorites and often learn something new. That’s how one day I came across Mangold Salad. It looked interesting, so I googled it – in English

Mint rice courtesy of Indian kitchen
Mint/Pudhina rice is a flavourful rice dish. The fresh flavor of mint and coriander leaves makes this dish so yummy. I love the soft Potatoes and green peas cooked in the mint paste. This is an easy and instant rice recipe that I prepare often.

A fresh bunch of methi leaves along with shallots and tamarind makes this SouthIndian delicacy a finger-licking one.

Mint chutney is one of my favorite. Piping hot Idli with mint chutney is the perfect combo.

Spinach Salad Meets Luxury courtesy of Real Life of an MSW
I had to read the sign twice- $1.00! One couldn’t beat that. With a quick glance at the expiration date, which was three days away, I knew my dinner problems would be easily solved over the next couple of days.

Mixed Greens Meet Fruit courtesy of Real Life of an MSW
The main ingredient was a dollar- when was the last time you had a healthy meal for $1? Tonight I decided to go with mixed greens from tart to almost sweet, from crunchy to melting. You want them all in this salad. This salad can be made a million ways.

Easter pie, torta pasqualina courtesy of mad & delicacy
The torta pasqualina is a traditional pie from Liguria, a wonderful region by the sea in North-west Italy. This pie is made during Easter time when the days are getting warmer and sunnier, and people enjoy having picnics outside bringing their homemade food to share with friends.

Hello, Stranger, Have Some Soup! courtesy of koolkosherkitchen
Passover starts tonight, and the most important part of the celebration is called a Seder which means order. The order is prescribed in a little book called Haggada that we read at the table. The most important part of that is called Maggid which is the actual story of redemption and exodus from Egypt.  And the most important part of the story, repeated several times, is an admonition to share the holiday meal with a widow, an orphan, and a stranger because “you were strangers in a foreign land.” The same admonition is found in many other Biblical and Talmudic sources.
