Passover Recipes: Chicken with Apple Salsa



My philosophy on cooking for Passover is to avoid the fake stuff and go au natural.  The more straight proteins, fruits and vegetables you can incorporate, the less Passover-y the food will taste!

This is a great dish to prepare when you are already chopping apples for your charoset.  Chop some extras, squeeze a lime over them so they won’t brown while you’re doing everything else, and you can come back and add the rest of the ingredients later.  The apple salsa is great over just about anything: fish, steak, chicken, over some spinach as part of a salad; you cannot go wrong!

This is another recipe from our favorite vegan, Mayim Bialik. Mayim claims she’s not usually an eggplant girl, but that this dish tastes incredible.

Passover Recipes: Tuscan Style Chopped Liver



chopped-liver-stampOne of my favorite recent Passover recipes is an Italian style liver spread, instead of traditional chopped liver. This recipe is…unctuous. Rich, sweet, flavorful, and will blow your traditional mom’s (or bubbe’s) chunky liver out of the water. This recipe is NOT for those who are looking for a healthy alternative. This recipe is best for people looking for an indulgent dish, because yes, it has fat in it.

Traditional Tuscan style liver spread calls for a special wine made in the region called Vin Santo, which of course is difficult (though not impossible) to find kosher. So instead of using the elusive sweet Vin Santo wine, I recommend using a sweet red wine, or even dare I say it.

Ok, I’ll whisper: Manischewitz.

I like to broil my own livers, but there is no reason you can’t use already broiled livers from the butcher.

Passover Recipes: Mediterranean Gefilte Fish



Too many people are stuck in a rut when it comes to gefilte fish. Take it out of the jar, add a dollop of horseradish and carrot. But this recipe from frequent MJL contributor and cook extraordinaire Avigail Hurvitz-Prinz shakes up the classic, offering something that will surprise and delight everyone at your seder.

Passover Recipes: Salat Tapuz



Sometimes you need a break from all the heavy meat and kugels that are typical during Passover. This salad is a refreshing treat and can either be served as part of your Seder menu or during the week alongside a piece of grilled chicken or fish. Enjoy!

Passover Recipes: Sephardi Style Charoset



Our family has served two kinds of charoset for the past decade — while nothing can take the place of my aunt’s Eastern European charoset, with apples and walnuts cut in the same wooden bowl with a mezzeluna and put in the same green-tinted glass jar with cinnamon and Manischewitz to marinade overnight — the Sefardi/Mizrahi charoset has made a place for itself.

Charoset, regardless of ethnicity, is made of layers of flavor and constant taste-testing. Not such a bad plan during your potentially hectic holiday prep.

Passover Recipes: Pomengranate Candied Walnut Charoset



There are many different varieties of Charoset – from Bubbe’s traditional apple and Manishewitz to various Sephardi styles with dates and other dried fruit. I know each family has their own recipe, but I think its nice to change things up every now and then during the holidays.

The first time I made Seder for my family, I tried this recipe and adapted it over time to the recipe below. If you don’t want to make your own candied walnuts, go ahead and buy them! Fairway, Trader Joes and other major supermarkets will carry candied walnuts or pecans which you can certainly substitute.
