    1. Does walnut oil need a Passover hecher?

      this salad is so delicious . the combination of ingredients makes it so tasty. I put it on the table and it was gone in minutes. changed some of the dressing ingredients. i have never seen champagne vinegar that was kosher-maybe you can address this Rebecca so I used white wine vinegar and I could not find walnut dressing in the stores so I used olive oil and the dressing was still delicious

      This salad was delicious and so refreshing. I substituted Pomelo pieces for the grapefruit segments and juice. They were a little less acidic and just as tasty. I also used white wine vinegar as a substitute for the champagne vinegar. I will definitely make this salad again.

    4. This was a delightful salad. Perfect with cholent for shabbat. I did change a few ingredients. We are not particularly fond of red onions raw. I would use shallots instead. I didnt have romaine so I used green leaf lettuce. I couldnt even to begin to find champagne vinegar and used our herb incused white vinegar , and olive oil not walnut. I would add a little more sugar to the dressing. I would definately keep this in my repitoir.

      Hi, looks so delicious but can these ingredients be bought in Israel and if not what can be alternative ingredients.
      Thanks so much
      3 tablespoons champagne vinegar

      • I am not sure what is available in Israel, but you can sub the champagne vinegar with white wine vinegar and any nut oil would be good, but otherwise olive oil is fine.

    6. What about the pecans???

      where can I get kosher champagne vinegar

      • This has been an ongoing question, not so easy to find. Rebecca said she found it in Brooklyn some time ago, but we don’t know if it is still around. Try subbing white wine vinegar.
