Growing up, my grandmother made the best family style meals. One of these famous meals was salmagundi: a platter of different cooked meats, fish, eggs, and vegetables. It's truly the best combo plate.
This meal was everyone's favorite in the family, so much so that everyone would travel to grandma's house for Thanksgiving just to have some of the platter. Others in the family started to cook it, and now it's a family tradition. Whenever it seems like my family is going off track or is pulling away, I make grandma's salmagundi and it's all good.
