Elaborate But Fresh Traditional Lunch

A long lunch follows decoration of the maypole. For this lunch, no Swedish Midsummer table is complete without pickled herring, boiled new potatoes with dill, cured salmon or smoked salmon, savory cake and strawberry cake. Adults enjoy flavored schnapps and start playing drinking games while singing traditional songs. Check out the recipes available for each of these traditional foods.
