Just what the title says--salad in a sandwich. This recipe comes from a goofy old cookbook called "Wolf in Chef's Clothing, the Picture Cook and Drink Book for Men." All the recipes in the book are done in pictures, but I've translated them into words for you. I've scaled this down to one serving for simplicity's sake.
Serve this as a cooling contrast to curry or other spicy dishes. Adapted from The New York Times Cookbook. Although the book suggests substituting 1 teaspoon ground ginger for the fresh, I don't recommend this, as the taste will be completely different. Cook time includes chilling time.
This quick bread has a biscuit base with a cheesy topping. Adapted from 240 Delicious Ideas from French's. There is no publication date on this book, so if anyone knows when it came out, please let me know.
Adapted from Time-Life Foods of the World. Black mustard seeds are the same thing as brown mustard seeds. If you can't find them, you can use yellow ones, but the flavor will not be as strong.

Lurka means "boy." Log means "people." So these are "boy people" cookies, although I'm sure girl people will enjoy them, too! Adapted from The Spice Cookbook, which credits the recipe to the wife of one of India's delegates to the U.N.
Hard-boiled eggs in a spicy sauce. Adapted from the New York Times Cookbook. Serve with rice. Chopped peanuts, raisins, grated orange zest, chopped parsley, chopped onion, chutney and/or coconut may be used as accompaniment.
