I am especially proud of this creation because I love to incorporate the simanim throughout my menu. This gorgeous, healthful and refreshing recipe satisfies so tastefully— I wouldn’t wait for the holidays to make it!. This recipe calls for cooked beets. You can use boiled, canned or roasted (my favorite!)

This is my version of a French Niçoise salad. I make it with lamb instead of tuna, and it contains the ritual components of the Seder plate and table. The dressing is made from kosher sweet wine and maror (the bitter herb, in this case, white horseradish), creating a creamy pink dressing. This salad also makes a nice lunch or light dinner during chol hamoed, the nonholiday days of Passover.

Simple roasted apples often made with brown sugar and cinnamon are enhanced here by using date syrup and cardamom. They make the perfect sweet treat any time. On their own, as an ice cream topping or mixed with some plain yogurt you will love the sweet aromatic flavor.

 

Orange Ginger Charoset

Charoset is one of more popular and tasty symbolic foods on the Passover Seder Plate. It is a sweet, dark-colored paste made of fruits and nuts meant to mask some of the bitterness of the horseradish. The word "charoset" comes from the Hebrew word cheres, meaning clay. It’s color and texture are meant to recall mortar which the Israelites used when they were enslaved in Egypt. Like pretty much everything in Judaism, there are lots of different traditions depending on what part of the world one is from. Traditionally, the recipe calls for apples, nuts and wine. I personally like to stay true to traditions while simultaneously playing with new ingredients to keep things fresh and fun. The following recipe for charoset does just that! The recipe calls for apples, nuts and wine, keeping with tradition, but also incorporates, orange, ginger and mint to keep things new and exciting! Have fun and experiment this year! Wishing you all a Chag Kasher V’Sameach!

Individual Cranberry Tarts are a fun way to serve this seasonal fruit. The apricot glaze pairs beautifully with the tartness of the cranberries. Make your own tart crust or use premade ones to make this extra easy.

 

Individual Apple-Stuffed Challah

When our patriarch Yaakov masqueraded as Eisav to obtain his rightful "firstborn" blessing from his father, Yitzchak, he donned Eisav's cloak. Yitzchak exclaimed, "the fragrance of my son is like the fragrance of a field that G-d has blessed" and blessed Yaakov. The Talmud identifies the fragrance as an apple orchard, and the Vilna Gaon says this happened on Rosh Hashanah. We eat apples (tons of them) because we too want those holy blessings given to Yaakov.
