Swedish Christmas Classic - Jansson's Temptation

Swedish Christmas Classic – Jansson’s Temptation: This is essentially a potato gratin, topped with crispy breadcrumbs, soft on the inside and spiced up with small pickled sprats to add an almost undefinable sweet saltiness to the dish. But don’t be alarmed by the sprat thing. It doesn’t taste like fish – the sprats are just seasoning.

Scandinavian Cucumbers

Scandinavian Cucumbers from My mom used to make this in the summertime with cucumbers fresh from her garden. It became a family favorite. I use my mandoline to slice the veggies very thin. I hope you enjoy this cool summertime salad as much as we do! Cooking time is chilling time.
