Trio of Salads – Poland witnessed in the 16th century a prodigious cultural and culinary transformation.  When the Italian Princess, Bona Sforza married Poland’s King Zygmunt Stary, she introduced an Italian style, culture and cuisine to the Polish royal court.  Queen Bona enriched the meat and groats based Polish cuisine with a new variety of vegetables and fruits.  Włoszczyzna, “Italian Stuff”, is a mixture of vegetables, such as carrot, parsnip, leek, celery and parsley, often used as a basis for soups.  Ever since, the Polish cuisine utilizes sundry vegetables in many traditional dishes, including colorful salads, collectively called Surówka.  Surówka is made with different vegetables, raw or fermented, usually flavored with olive oil or sour cream.  Our Trio of Salads is made with beets, cabbage and carrots, and flavored with olive oil.  Beets are a nutritious root vegetable that have red or yellow color, and a sweet and earthy flavor.  Cabbage, is a nutritious vegetable, versatile to different cooking techniques and cultivated as densely packed heads with pale green or red leaves.  Carrots are a highly nutritious root vegetable, has orange, yellow, red or purple color, and a sweet and earthy flavor.  We choose red beets, pale green cabbage and orange carrots to create this refreshing side dish, our Trio of Salads that may be served separately or together.  Our Trio of Salads is light, nutritious and tasty.
