Warm potato salad


A culinary blog cannot do without a recipe for potato salad. To me, it is the Queen of cooked salads, mostly because it is very suitable as an accompaniment to appetizers and starters, side dish to main dishes and various backed meals/casseroles. I will share my way of preparation and, in result, you will understand how tasty it is. Not many products needed:

800gr potatoes

1 small onion

1 tsp salt

3-4 tbsp olive oil or sunflower oil

2 tsp vinegar/lemon juice/

Boil half a liter of water in a saucepan. During this time peel and cut the potatoes into cubes, rinse them and put them in the water. Add the salt. Boil them approximately 10-15 minutes, but still try them, because the varieties of potatoes are different. Then drain the water, but leave at least 1-2 spoons of water, to become juicy and soft and immediately add olive oil, vinegar or lemon juice and chopped into thin pieces and rubbed with salt onion. Transfer into salad dish and decorate as desired with finely chopped dill or parsley.

Chicken –Gardner’s style


This popular Bulgarian dish has many ways of preparation and the products can be chosen depends on the season.

The chicken is cut into portions, which have to be slightly fried in a little oil and then transferred into casseroles/saucepan In a separate container mix the chunky chopped and salted onion, carrots, mushrooms, green beans, peppers and garlic. Peel the potatoes, if they are big cut into large cubes and add them to other vegetables. All vegetables are put in the cooking dish with the chicken meat. The tomato can be poured into a bowl and mix with paprika, celery, parsley, thyme and black pepper and added to other products .Then dilute the flour in a warm water 1 ½ tea cup. Mix all products together in the casserole/cooking dish and put it in a cold oven and bake for two and a half hours. First hour cook at 200C and then the rest at 150C.
