Hawaiian-style Delicacies and a Strawberry Tart

spring rolls stuffed with kalua pork

Broke da mouth. That is what we say in Hawaii when something we’ve eaten is more than just delicious. A recent meal with a group of friends was just that—broke-da-mouth good. And broke da diet, too. Full credit goes to the cooks, Jan and Nadine, and the photos are also theirs, not mine. In addition to pot roast with carrots, celery, onion, potatoes and gravy, here’s what we had at our small gathering:

Have you ever had a salad wrapped laulau style? Undo the string, and the leaves fall open, petal-like, to reveal mixed lettuce and veggies, plus mandarin-orange slices and strawberries.

Strawberry Delight: ginger strawberry tart with a gingersnap-cookie crust, strawberry filling, and a topping of sliced fresh strawberries and strawberry jam.

Peaches and Cream Torte with a graham-cracker-crumb crust, and a filling of sliced peaches, cream cheese and Cool Whip.

  1. Vegetarian Laulau! Awesome!


    • Indeed! And no cooking, either. Now I’m thinking about all the other veggies I could put in there if I tried it. Squash, maybe? Bell peppers? Pumpkin? Endless possibilities. Sounds like you know your laulau.


  2. This all looks delicious! The peaches and cream torte sounds wonderful!


  3. What a lovely way towered salad!


  4. How lucky were you!


  5. The salad wrapped laulau style called my name. 😉
