from www.npr.org: "This festive coleslaw mimics colors of summer. It serves as a perfect dip with pita chips or bread, a chunky sandwich spread and a topping for other julienned vegetables. Kids love to top off their red and green pepper slices with this slaw and crunch away. It is also a perfect accompaniment to grilled cheese sandwiches."
this recipe reminds me of a lovely holiday in Kerala.
from www.npr.org: "My mom would whip up this wilted salad when unexpected guests showed up at the dinner table. One of the most simple yet flavorful salads, it gets its oomph from a combination of fresh grated coconut, sharp mustard and earthy cumin seeds."
fresh curry leaves and asafetida powder (aka hing) are available at any Indian grocer
from www.npr.org: "A traditional South Indian recipe, red or orange beets can be substituted for carrots for a variation of this slaw. This salad packs a punch with its tartness from the sharp lime and the heat from the jalapenos. This is a colorful, pretty slaw. A cup of grated mango can be substituted for the lime."

A pressed and griddled sandwich with smoked ham, robusto cheese and pickles. Traditionally this sandwich is made in a press using a soft Cuban roll and shredded pork and ham. Mayo and pickles are always included and sometimes to peppers are added for an extra kick.

Makes 4 calzones: divide a 1 pound pizza dough ball after refrigerating for an hour or 2, then cut into quarters. Spray a large glass or ceramic dish with Pam. Roll each quarter into a ball, then place in the prepared dish and spray the doughs with Pam. Cover with plastic wrap and set in a warm place for an hour or 2 to let the doughs rise. Ingredients and directions are for each individual calzone.
If you are using the barley (which you should do if you want a more authentic Irish country stew), cook it for 20 minutes in 3 cups of lamb or beef stock. You'll add to the stew later.
Serve with mashed potatoes (if desired) and Irish soda bread
