Recipe
Step 1
Place all ingredients in a bowl (except mint) and whisk to combine well. Add the mint and stir. If needed, add 1-2 Tbsp water to thin for desired consistency.
Step 2
Preheat the oven to 350 F. Rub every crevice generously with olive oil, then sprinkle with plenty of kosher salt and black pepper. Bake for about 35 minutes, then brush the top of the chicken with the juices. Return to oven for 5 minutes to brown the top. Remove from the oven. Let rest for 10 minutes, then slice.
Step 3
Preheat oven to 425 F. Slice potatoes into 1/4 inch pieces. Place potatoes in a bowl with olive oil, salt, pepper, and cayenne and coat each potato slice evenly. Evenly place the potato slices on a parchment paper covered baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Remove, flip, and return to oven for 15 more minutes. Repeat this step until the edges are brown and crisp and the inside of the potato is soft.
Step 4
Slice fruits and vegetables into beautiful pieces. Arrange greens and parsley on a gorgeous platter. Fill the platter with your sliced fruits and vegetables. After arranging your salad, place the marinated onions on the platter–it’s fine if some of the oil comes along. Sprinkle with pomegranate seeds and drizzle with the Tangy Skyr Dressing. Perfection!

Borscht

Borscht is a delicious, hearty beet soup popular in Eastern Europe, with origins most commonly traced to Ukraine. The dish typically contains beets and other vegetables cooked in broth and often topped with sour cream, though there are many variations served across the globe. Polish borscht, for example, is often a thin soup with juicy dumplings. Some versions are thicker in consistency, filled with hearty vegetables and stewed meat. Home Cooking Collective makes it vegetarian, subbing mushroom broth for beef broth, and features root vegetables, beets, and cabbage. They top the borscht with creamy skyr and a garnish of dill for a bright finish. Serve on its own, or with pierogi for a satisfying weeknight dinner. Serves 4-6
