Recipe: Croatian salad with dill

Salads with aromatic herbs
January 20, 2010

DillThis recipe called for pickled dill and it makes me think... wow pickled dill? I knew that dill is the perfect add for pickles... why I never tought of an entire jar of pickled dill?

And why stop to dill?
So because of this recipe I change all my 2010 plans for the garden, creating more space for my favourite aromatic herbs.

Instead of pickled dill, I used fresh dill and pickled purslane.
