Catholic Recipe: Gregorian Cocktail
There is a traditional dish from Armenia which with bread has spelled Lenten diet for many eastern peoples. It consists of a mixture of vegetables which is both tasty and vital. The translator called it a Gregorian cocktail. I am not sure whether you eat or drink it, but I am sure St. Gregory would shudder to be its sponsor. At any rate, what's in a name? Mix it up once and you will do so often. If you serve it for children, you may wish to cut down on the spiced sauces.
On September 3rd we celebrate the feast of St. Gregory the Great. Try this recipe named after this saint.
Mix vegetables and relishes. Season with spices. Cover top with chopped walnuts. Serve as a one dish Lenten meal, or use as a dressing for slaw.Recipe Source: Cooking for Christ by Florence Berger, National Catholic Rural Life Conference, 4625 Beaver Avenue, Des Moines, IA 50310, 1949, 1999
