Rosh Hashana Sweet Salad – Sweet salad made with the fruits from Rosh Hashana’s seder
Rosh Hashana is one of my favorite holiday (after hanukah!) and I love it even more since I got married and get to celebrate it with my husband. I am sure you are aware how much food we eat during the holidays and how exhausting it can be!
This is why I love coming up with healthy recipes for the occasion. This Rosh Hashana sweet salad has apple, pomegranate and dates but also a flavorful honey dressing. To add even more sweetness, this recipe has figs (here dried figs but would love to try it with fresh figs!).
And on top of everything, the best part is that you can eat this recipe all year long! The parsley definitely add a flavor contrast thanks to it slightly bitter taste. Feel free to replace with any other herbs!
