Chard and Spinach Salad with Chicken

One bunch Swiss chard (4 leaves)
Two generous handfuls of fresh spinach
3-4 red cherry tomatoes
1 grilled chicken breast
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
Oregano, apple cider vinegar, and extra virgin olive oil to taste

Cut out the Swill chard stalks and set them aside, since they will not be used in this salad. Cut up all greens, the tomatoes and chicken breast. Add Parmesan, vinegar, olive oil and toss to mix. Taste the result because between the chicken breast and the Parmesan, you most probably will not need to add any salt.

Yogurt and cucumbers dip/dressing/soup

This is a traditional Bulgarian summer soup (called tarator). It is very similar to Greek Tzatziki (can buy premade at various stores,including Costco)

2 cloves garlic, minced finely (optional; san use green garlic instead as well)
1/2 tsp. salt
plain yogurt (strained if you want to make a dip)
2 cucumbers, peeled, seeded and diced
chopped walnuts (optional)
chopped fresh dill

Combine  garlic, salt, cucumber ; blend the yogurt and chopped fresh dill. Chill for at least two hours before serving.
We eat it as soup (add some water); you can dip veggies in it or use it as dressing for green salads

French Breakfast Radish Tartines


  • 1 bunch French breakfast radishes ( I assume you can use any type of radish)
  • 1 small loaf of Whole Grain bread, cut into (1/4-inch thick) slices or 1 French Baguette halved lengthwise and each half cut crosswise into 4 pieces
  • good quality unsalted butter, room temperature (you can use goat cheese or any other creamy cheese you like, instead)
  • coarse sea salt
  • parsley (optional)

Cut bread into 1/2 inch slices (you can toast the bread if you would like). Slice radishes as thinly as possible. Spread a layer of butter on the bread and arrange the radish slices on top. Sprinkle with coarse sea salt and chopped parsley.

(the butter and the salt together almost eliminate the spiciness of the radishes and this easy sandwich makes a great snack for kids of all ages).
