This salad is inspired by Charoset (ka-ROW-set), a chopped apple and walnut dish that is traditionally served during Passover Seder. You can substitute the walnuts for pistachios or pecans, or make it nut-free. The crushed matzo adds a nice crunch, but if you don’t have it, and aren’t making this dish kosher for Passover, you can add croutons or lightly crushed crackers.
Crispy split peas are a delicious addition to salads, grain bowls, and even plain oatmeal! A good source of iron and fiber, split peas are also packed with protein.
Cabbage and orange are in season through the winter and this crunchy salad is a snap to pull together. The longer you allow it to rest, the softer the cabbage will be.
Kugel (pronounced KOO-gul) is a sweet or savory casserole that uses egg noodles, potatoes, or matzo meal to bind it together. This recipe uses matzo meal, a standard ingredient in recipes for Passover.
