Hasselback Potatoes

The name suggests that the dish originates from Restaurant Hasselbacken in Stockholm, but similar recipes can be found in old Swedish cookbooks. This is my husbands favorite potato dish and it is great with practically anything. Even by itself!

Skagenröra (Swedish Shrimp Salad)

This is the most common mayo-based salad in Sweden, found in sandwiches sold at gas stations as well as on appetizer menus of exclusive restaurants. Tasty, fresh and very easy to make!

Pico de Gallo

Means “rooster’s beak” in Spanish, assumedly because people pinched it between thumb and forefinger when eating. It is a fresh, crude salsa used as a topping or component for many Mexican dishes.


There is no comparison to freshly made guacamole. You can use it in tacos, hamburgers or as a dip for nacho chips, just to mention a few. Make sure your avocados are nice and soft for the perfect flavor.

Cabbage Kimchi (통배추김치)

Traditional Napa cabbage kimchi may be a little smelly, but this deliciously tangy, spicy banchan (side dish) is served with everything in Korea and is the main ingredient in many popular Korean dishes.
