Potato, or vegatable dish for mother's day, any ideas?

This will be to accompany pita sandwiches with tzadziki sauce.

a lentil or bean salad would be nice. no potatoes, i'd also avoid peanut butter and jellybeans.:p

I suggest a Greek style potato salad, with red potatoes, plenty of parsley, scallions, capers, and dressed with a red wine - extra virgin olive oil vinaigrette -- anchovies on the side.

BDL, I dont think Chef Ed was saying that Tahini and Taziki were the same, he was suggesting a Tahini Dip with a veggie or root chip in place of a potato dish.

I would also recommend a Tabouleh salad or a grain salad to keep it light and fresh,

Ed,

Yes but the meal is up in the air until Linda decides -- it will be just the two of us (her mom passed a few years ago, mine last year).

Dinner is either arroz con pollo or grilled rib steak. If the chicken, we'll start with an avocado salad and side with fried plantains. If the rib steak, an iceberg lettuce wedge with Green Goddess to start, plus either sauteed sweet potatoes dressed with butter, or fettuccine al burro.

I haven't decided on dessert yet, but will do something with strawberries. Maybe shortcake. Whatever, it will be low effort.

You?

Believe it or not friends invited us to a Kosher Bar B Q at their house, No cheeseburgers I guess .Everyone invited bringing something. I am bringing Mini Fruit Tarts and Brownies and Blondies(Non Dairy). My wife doesnt cook so I do it (she Cleans) I figure thats a good trade off. Have a good day , ED :D

A pita sandwich without french fries? I couldn't do it. Mmmm, french fries dipped in tzatziki :smiles: It is interesting though that Mother's Day dinner is greek street food.
