Nutritious Salad Dressing – Magic Green Sauce Recipe

In the past post I mentioned a very nutritious Quinoa salad flavored with this Magic Green Sauce. 
I am providing a link to its origin, but will also post the ingredients and directions in this post, in case the link stops working at some point, and because I made some minor adjustments to suit my taste.

Green Goddess Quinoa Salad – Recipe

This Quinoa Salad with Magic Green Sauce became my favorite from the first time my daughter-in-law served it for lunch during one of our visits.
It could easily be a light lunch meal in itself, or as an accompaniment to a main course.
Today I will share a recipe for the salad, since you already have the recipe for the sauce/dressing from my previous post.

Refreshing Tomato Salad – Recipe

Meatless dishes are a welcome change to our family’s daily routine of meat based meals.
Today I will post one of the tomato salads she used to prepare, which brings back many childhood memories.

Sorrel Borscht (Shchav, Shchavel) – Recipe

If you like tangy flavored soups, you will love Sorrel Borscht (Shchav). My first experience with tasting this dish was in a Polish restaurant, while visiting my family in Poland. My husband really liked the slightly tangy taste of this soup, so I have been preparing it during the sorrel growing season. The main ingredient is sorrel, of course, a simple herb but not easily found in a grocery store, but rather in a specialty food shop, or a garden (your own or your friend’s).

You can find a ready-made Shchav Borscht, in the Kosher section at your favorite grocery store, but its taste does not measure up to the fresh, homemade version. Once you make it at home, you most likely will never want to buy it pre-made.

Italian Wedding Soup with Kale – Recipe

Italian Wedding soup is almost a whole meal in one bowl, as you have the broth, the veggies, the little meatballs, and pasta or rice.

My daughter makes this soup for her family, as her children love the little meatballs in the soup, so I also added it to my list of soups I prepare at home and often share with them.
