Polish to go (Week 15)

Easter is here and my hubby was missing "the old country" so I packed up my goodies and took them to my parent's give him a little Polish Easter in the middle of our Croatian festivities.  His number one favorite is the "French Salad" that his Mom makes.  Forgive the "white bars"....the blog is acting up!!

Francuska saƂatka

  • 4 cups potatoes (cooked diced)
  • 32 oz mixed vegetables (frozen, cooked and drained)
  • 16 oz frozen peas (cooked and drained)
  • dill pickle (diced)
  • 12 cup green onion (chopped)
  • 2 tbsp fresh dill (chopped)
  • salt and pepper
  • 34 cup mayonnaise
  • 34 cup sour cream
  • 2 tbsp prepared mustard
  • hard-boiled eggs (chopped)
  • Mix everything together gently and chill for at least 2 hours.  
Next is Cwikla.  This a beet and horseradish relish that he LOVES.  I can't give you a cool recipe so I will tell you what I do....  Boil 5 small beets.  Peel and throw in the food processor with the blade inside.  Add 3 heaping tablespoons of prepared horseradish   The best is Trader Joe's at this point, unless you are lucky enough to be growing this weed in the garden.  Add a teaspoon on vegeta (or salt and pepper each), then a splash of white vinegar or two.  Whirl till chunky but smooth.  Serve chilled on top of hard boiled eggs.
