I fell in love with Judaism one bite at a time—a rugelach here, a matzoh ball there, a crispy serving of potato kugel with the brisket.
Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, is so sensibly sited when the year is really brand new, as the children return to school and the brisker days encourage resolution and effort. To make the new year sweet, we are also encouraged to serve foods like apples dipped in honey. For my family, no holiday dinner would be complete without Fresh Beet Salad. This wonderful dish adds glowing color, firm texture, and tart sweetness. It’s fast, easy, keeps for days, and will convert virtually all beet haters instantly to this inexpensive, filling and vitamin and mineral-packed vegetable. What’s more, the greens attached to those beets are nutritious and yummy, too—more on that in my next post.
