The dish I prepared for you today is perfect, especially on late summer or autumn afternoons, when the day wanes and the air gets cooler. During this period, we all dream about something generous and rich – but nothing too heavy as winter is not yet here.

Let’s start with a bit of history 🙂

Kasha is one of the oldest and primal Slavic foods – and no, it’s not potatoes as one might think. This product gained its popularity thanks to the simplicity of its preparation and storage. Over the years, Slavs have cultivated the recipe, using many different types of grain, yielding various flavors and textures. The most popular variation is Millet, as it marries easily with sweet and salty dishes, making it very universal.

Traditional vegetable salad is typically served on Polish tables during Easter. It is beloved by many for its simplicity and many flavours. It’s a perfect daily appetizer, paired best with fresh, crunchy bread!

I love preparing this salad during weekends so I can eat it in the mornings over the course of the week, and sometimes I even bring a bit to work.
