Great Pesach Ideas

Ansh-033012-book

People are forever asking me where I get my recipes from. The truth of the matter is that Hashem has mercy on me and is the One who is constantly sending me new ideas and sources. This next salad was created by my mother, Edith Shachter, and I’m sure you will like it as much as we did.

 

Roasted Beet Salad with Greens (serves 6)

Ingredients
1 large onion, sliced into quarter rings
1-2 leeks, sliced
1 each red, orange, and yellow pepper, sliced
6 medium sized beets, peeled and chunked
1 fennel, chunked, optional
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup of semi-dry white wine
6 cups any mix of greens
1 red onion, sliced into half rings

Prepare the onion, leeks, pepper, beets and fennel as directed. Put them all in a bowl and toss them together with the pepper, garlic powder and olive oil. Preheat the oven to 375°F / 190-200°C.

Layer the vegetable mix onto a lined baking pan. Pour the wine over all. Bake until the beets are softened, about 45 minutes. If the vegetables start to dry out, add a bit more wine. Remove from the oven and let it cool. Place it in a covered plastic container with a lid and refrigerate.

To serve, toss together the greens and the red onion. Divide the greens among the six salad plates; spoon the roasted beet mix on each plate. This dish does not require any additional dressing, however, if you feel it does, drizzle a bit of olive oil and fresh lemon juice on your plate – but it really is wonderful as is.

 

Now let’s move onto dessert and some refreshing ices.

Kiwi Ices (serves 4-6)

Ingredients
8 ripe kiwis, peeled and washed
3/4 cup seltzer
1 & 2/3 cup sugar syrup (see recipe below)

Blend all ingredients together until smooth. Pour into a plastic container and freeze flat. After about 4-6 hours, when still partially frozen, blend again and then freeze. When ready to serve, scoop into ball shapes and place in glass dishes.

Recipe for the sugar syrup: 4 cups sugar to 4 cups water Bring sugar and water to a boil, mixing constantly. After it has come to a boil, continue to simmer it for 10 minutes on a low flame. Cool and use as needed.

 

Applesauce Cranberry Ices

1  1/2 – 2 cups applesauce
2 cans jellied cranberry sauce
1 cup Sprite or soda water
1 cup orange juice
optional (I did not use it): 1–2 tablespoons fruit-flavored liqueur

Mix ingredients by hand or beat with a hand beater for a minute or two until smooth. Pour into a large flat, square plastic container and freeze overnight.

The next day, remove it from the freezer. Cut into it; if you can, and then cut it into four or five pieces and put it into your mixer bowl. Beat slowly with the regular flat beater (i.e., NOT the egg whipping beater!), until it resembles a sherbet consistency. Refreeze. Remove from the freezer about 5 minutes before serving. Scoop into dessert bowls and serve.

One year we went out for a meal and instead of bringing along the usual chocolates or wine, I offered the hostess an array of colorful salads. After seeing how muchthey were enjoyed, I thought it would be nice to recreate them. All these salads can be made a day in advance and refrigerated until serving time, making them ideal for a hectic, busy Yom Tov time of year. Besides, it’s always nice to have something different and delicious to serve when extra guests and family come over…

Lots of people think that if you can’t use rice like the Sephardim do on Pesach, nor matza meal like many Ashkenazim do on Pesach, then there’s “nothing left to eat!” This article is being written to dispel all these gloomy forecasts. Baruch Hashem, there is so much you can do if you just turn your creative juices up. Clip this out and save it – it’s also great for those who need to eat gluten-free. Let’s focus now on some delicious dishes that present really beautifully, and then on some easy and refreshing desserts.
