So my friend Amy from House of Nash Eats contacted me a few weeks ago about joining in on group of bloggers who wanted to celebrate the “BIG GAMES” coming up next week. Side note: Did you know that because I am not an official sponsor of said games, that I am not allowed to mention them, where they are taking place, or “Go Team “country” at all? Nope. But you know what I am talking about, right? They happen every 4 years, and the top athletes from around the world compete for prizes in certain colors? Yeah. Can’t mention it. Anyway – spending a week discovering recipes from other countries? Heck. Yes.

 

Cucumber Salad with Towel

 

I decided to dedicate a few recipes to the awesome country of Sweden. This cucumber salad is a great dish. With only a few ingredients, its quick and easy! Just stir the ingredients together and voila! The quick bath in vinegar and sugar lead to kind of a quick pickle, and the addition of the fresh dill gives a rich, warm and sweet taste to the recipe. Its fresh, vibrant and refreshing! This makes a fantastic side dish when paired with Swedish Meatballs. Also check out Swedish Red Beet and Apple Salad and Swedish Chocolate Balls for a well-rounded Swedish meal!

    I have a bag of cucumbers in my fridge that I know just what to do with now! My grandpa used to make a similar salad and it’s one of my favorites!
