Scandinavian Pickled Cucumber Salad

This is an old favorite served in Sweden, Norway, and Denmark alike. Here’s how my 90-year-old mother has always made her beloved “gurka”. She always prefers a sprinkling of chopped fresh dill fronds to garnish it when she serves it, but says that other folks sometimes use fresh parsley instead.

Spiced Watermelon Rind Pickles

When you’re enjoying those wonderful summer watermelons, save the rinds. They make a delicious sweet pickle! Scrape out all pink and soft flesh from the rind. Then peel off the outer green skin. Cut the remaining white flesh into 1-inch squares or diamonds. Then measure how much you have. The recipe here makes about 7-8 pint jars full (one water-bath canner load). If you have more or less than 1 gallon of prepared rinds, adjust the other ingredients accordingly.

Spinach-Cheddar Quiche

We have 5 kids, ages 15 down to 1 year and they ALL love this meal. You know that says a lot when you can get all the kids to agree on something! Hopefully your family will enjoy this as much as ours does! The original recipe calls for half-and-half but I have found that evaporated milk makes a great (and less expensive) substitue. Also, the original recipe uses frozen spinach – I always use fresh and have never had a problem.

Steamed Eggs and Squash

Right after I graduated college, a coffee shop opened up town. Besides the usual coffee shop drinks, Martha’s Black Dog served up a few simple but beautifully prepared dishes, and the place quickly became a favorite place to eat. This recipe for Steamed Eggs and Squash is one of her dishes that is still in my rotation today. It’s a great way to use up the overflowing basket of squash and zucchini, along with those eggs that are finally plentiful. Add a side of sauteed green beans and some crunchy toast, and you’ve got a fine meal suitable for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. And made 100% with items found through Athens Locally Grown

Strawberry and Leek Quesadillas

This is hardly a recipe, but I wanted to give some ballpark measurements and hints for those who want them. Pick up the most fragrant basket of strawberries, deep red right up to the stem. Then add sauteed leeks with their subtle onion flavor, all held together by the creamy tartness from the goat cheese. It’s a ten minute snack of pure LOVELINESS.

Strawberry and Spring Onion Salad

Summer Ceviche Salad

An interesting change for a summer menu, using an assertive Central and South American herb sometimes called “summer cilantro”. (You could substitute regular cilantro, but the flavor is not really the same.) A very healthy recipe, with no need to heat up the kitchen — the lime juice marinade “cooks” the fish. Only one downside — though it came from a blog that emphasizes local foods, the recipe uses supermarket fish — groan. It’s delicious, but I’m hoping that someone who is a better fisherman than I am will try this with a local, wild-caught fish such as bream or sunfish. If you do, please post your results!

Swedish Berry Cream

When I visited my relatives in Sweden during the summer of 1961, I was delighted when they served this dessert. When I asked for the recipe, everyone laughed. They told me no one needs a recipe for “kram” — this was just something everyone knows how to make! However, I watched my grandmother carefully and figured it out. Here’s how it’s done. It can be made with any type of fresh berries: strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, or blueberries. They are all delicious!

Swedish Pickled Beets

Variations of this colorful side dish or salad are popular throughout Scandinavia. This is how my 90-year-old Swedish mother makes pickled beets to this day. The chilled beet slices are delicious in a sandwich instead of cucumber pickles. They also make a beautiful presentation alternated with sliced hard boiled eggs.

Swedish Potato Pancakes With Chives

A simple, tasty recipe that my 90-year-old Swedish mother still makes today. It can easily be made vegan by using only vegetable oil, but the Swedes do love their dairy products!

Swiss chard and garbanzo pasta

This is a great, quick, nutritious recipe. I found it online while searching for more ways to cook the delicious Swiss chard we get from Athens Locally Grown, and I’ve changed it only by adding the mushrooms and onion.

Could be vegan without the feta, of course.

Swiss Chard Stem Gratin

Most green leafy vegetable stems are just as delicious as the leaves and can be included in any dish you are making. Depending on the recipe, you may have to give the stems a few minutes head start in boiling water. Or, you can just save them up for variations on this unusual recipe.

Tacos de Quelites — Tacos of Garlicky Greens

There are lots of recipes out there for “authentic” Mexican spinach quesadillas and similar dishes out there. Few of them will tell you, however, that none of those dishes were traditionally made with spinach. It’s a cool weather crop that has trouble growing here in Georgia, much less in the more arid and hot climates further south. What does grow well, both here and there, is the even more nutritious Lamb’s Quarter, and this is what modern recipes replace with spinach.

Thai Spicy Basil Chicken (or Almost Any Meat or Seafood!)

This chicken stir-fry made with Thai holy basil seems to be a favorite dish for Thais and Westerners alike. Fast and simple to prepare, it is sold in small Thai eateries as a quick one-plate meal served on a bed of steamed jasmine rice. (The number of fresh chilies makes this a spicy dish, but don’t let that scare you away — you can adjust the number downward to suit your taste.) In Thailand, basil-flavored stir-fries are frequently served for breakfast or for lunch, often topped with a crispy fried egg. Thai cooks will often substitute the chicken with pork, beef, squid, shrimp, or seafood, so feel free to do the same!

Tomato-Basil Salsa

This is about the simplest tomato salsa one can make, and it’s great with an Italian-themed meal or as an appetizer to keep folks occupied while supper is on the grill. We don’t drain the tomatoes; instead, we serve this with thin slices of slightly dried French bread to soak up the yummy juices.

Tommy Toe Salad

Sometimes the simplest recipes are the most delicious. This one has been a classic in the American South for at least a century. However, as I northerner by birth, I had to be introduced to it through Ann Jackson’s excellent cookbook. It’s now one of our family’s favorite ways to use red and yellow cherry tomatoes (which, as any kid knows, are “tommy toes”!).

Traditional Wild Persimmon Pudding

Persimmons have been an important part of our American heritage from earliest times; when the first European settlers arrived, they learned of them from the Algonquin Indians, who were already adding them to breads, soup, and porridge. These settlers used the new fruit in many ways, including as the basis for a variety of alcoholic drinks. However, a recipe much like the one here was probably part of some of the first Thanksgiving menus. Despite its name, this is not today’s soft custardy sort of pudding, but the traditional English style that was most familiar to the early settlers. With many variations, this recipe has been passed down through generations, and was a holiday staple for many rural families in the Southeast until at least the 1940s.

This is a beautifully green drink – and my 6-year old loves it. I’m sure many variations can be made (including the use of fresh fruits and/or add-ins like flax seeds or yogurt).

Turnips with Yogurt and Tomato

Two-Potato Pancakes

These make a great simple dinner with sausages (either meat or veggie-type) and applesauce. The addition of sweet potatoes makes the pancakes much higher in vitamin A and vitamin c, fiber, and complex carbohydrates, while the addition of white potatoes keeps the pancake from being too moist and soft. You can peel the potatoes if you prefer, but keeping the skins makes the dish even healthier.

Vietnamese "Cold Rolls"

When a friend returned from bicycling across Viet Nam, she shared this recipe with us. We adapted it into a kid-friendly family version by putting out the chopped ingredients separately in little bowls. Let everyone choose what they want to add, then fold them into little packets and dip them in the sauce (see separate listing for Easy Vietnamese Basic Dipping Sauce). Little kids and big ones alike love the element of personal control!
