I actually look forward to Passover food…really, I do. It’s the one single holiday I actually feel lighter after. I totally embrace the opportunity to eat lots of light fresh food and as always try my hardest not to overdo it – my guests actually thank me for keeping things on the lighter side. Love these cool salads and starters; after tasting them your guests will love you!

Balsamic Carrot & Cucumber Ribbon Salad
Pretty, pretty, pretty. And it doesn’t take much. If you own a vegetable peeler you’re in business.

egg and avocado salad

Avocado Egg Salad - Deconstructed Guacamole

Avocado Egg Salad
I should have named this “My Sister’s Mother-in-Law’s Israeli Guacamole.” But that seemed like a mouthful (plus it didn’t fit). I have made a ton of good guacs in my short cooking career but I never thought to add egg until I saw her do it. Sometimes you just need someone else to give you the simplest idea.

Pink Rimmed Gefilte Fish
How many ways can you reinvent this staple? Lots! I like to look at it as a blank canvas and say to myself, the fish, and anyone listening “nu, so now what?” This Pesach, dress it up in pink!

Grapefruit Brulée
Crème brulée is my favorite dessert and this starter is inspired by its sweet caramel-like top. Fruity, refreshing, and sweet—the kiddies and I were eating the juicy slices right off the pan.

  3. The ribbon salad is beautiful! I like these light ideas for great pesach food!

  4. It’s nice to have some new salads for yom tov!
