Polish Kaszanka is a sausage made of pig’s blood and groats (buckwheat or barley). Sometimes pig’s liver is added, depending on the region. It’s traditional polish food. Originally it was a dish prepared after pigsticking, to use all the parts of the pig. It has quite high levels of fat and cholesterol, but at the same time it supplements iron and zinc. Use it cautiously and enjoy Kaszanka:)
Kaszanka can be served cold, grilled or fried on the pan.
Silesian Potato dumplings are on the official list of traditional food of Silesian voivodeship. They are easy to prepare and delicious. A pork stew with sauce will make the serving complete, as the sauce is gathering in a dumpling’s hollows and stores the taste:)

I remember from my childhood that vegetable salad was a must for each Easter, Christmas, birthday and -very popular those times in Poland -name day. In the 80-ties mayonnaise was hard to get in stores, so we used to prepare it at home.
I still can’t imagine Easter with a family without vegetable salad.
