I tried out my daughter’s vegetable slicer on this. It made quick work of slicing the onions.
This gives a mild, sweet relish, very nice.

Indian Style Green Beans

This dish is a treat for the eyes, and a good side dish, though it could use some enhancement in the seasoning. On its own, it does not seem particularly “Indian” though it would certainly fit into an Indian-themed meal. And will grace almost any meal. Definitely worth trying, with perhaps more than the tiny hint of ginger suggested.

Ancient Persian Salad

Date tried: Nov. 3, 2014
Yield:6-8 servings
Time needed: 1/2 hour

This is very good. I love these dark greens. And so good for you, too as they are rich in vitamins and minerals.  Apparently the ancient Persians considered they helped children grow properly and so served them often. Adding cooked chicken or tuna makes it a whole meal.  For a side salad, use only the vegetables.
