Snacks & Sides
This spread came together pretty quickly and hit all the right buttons for a little bit of finger food, a little bit of crusty bread to sop up some saucy stuff, and some veggies strewn throughout. A nice glass of Spanish Rioja topped off the evening perfectly.
This meal had so many flavors, textures, different tasty elements, it was hard to pick a favorite. I think if I was pressed to choose though, it would be the Hearts of Palm Salad
We first had these on a beach in Hawaii from a Brazilian food truck in Haliewa. It is hard to beat that experience, but knowing we can make them in our own kitchen is getting pretty close.
For Hungary I perused a number of books, but Flavors of Hungary by Charlotte Slovak Biro was the clear winner. I found a lot of little gems in this cookbook. Including lovely recipes for Chicken, Potatoes, and Peas. A perfect trifecta in my world.
