The perfect salad to ring in Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year.
With less than a week to go chag is fast approaching. I am so overwhelmed by the outpouring of support from people around the world.
Each of you took the time to like and share my brisket recipe with those you love. I cannot tell you humbled I am knowing some of you will be making it for your family and friends this Yomtov.
As a huge big thank you, I created this easy salad inspired by the New Year traditions.
It’s loaded with tons of apples, cukes, candied oranges, figs and red onion on a bed of lettuce with a honey vinaigrette.
Dip the apple in the Honey
Make a Bracha loud and clear
L’Shana Tovah U’Mesuka …
For a Sweet New Year
Wishing you Shana Tova and may Hashem continue to shine His light on your homes and heart
