We have enjoyed taco night, Italian, Soup and Salads and Fried Chicken with all the trimmings. I decided to bring Polish food. I made Stuffed Cabbages, Kielbasa with Sauerkraut, Potato Cheese Pierogi, Spiced Pickled Beets and Creamed Cucumbers. I also made two new recipes and two desserts. I will be sharing all four of these with you but tonight I am only sharing one.
Our son in law, Pierre, had brought us some late season tomatoes from his garden. Some were ripe, some were partially ripe and some were green. We ate the ripe ones right away and placed the partially ripe tomatoes onto the window sill. Today I had seven fully ripe and beautiful tomatoes and decided to use them as a side dish for the church dinner.
On a whim, I punched in "Polish Tomato Salad" into Google Search and viola....found a great recipe at the Polska Foods website. I didn't have everything called for in the original recipe so I adapted it to work with the products in my kitchen. It was a delicious salad. I'm not sure what makes it Polish other than the sour cream. Polish people do love their sour cream!!
