Going green and ginger for the holidays
So often on Pesach we want to eat some of our favourite dishes or cakes from the rest of the year. Here’s Romi Rabinowitz’s Pesachdike green goddess salad and ginger cake.
The green goddess salad is so healthy and fresh, you’ll make this to accompany meals all year round.
Green Goddess Salad
1 green cabbage shredded (or iceberg lettuce)
3 cucumbers thinly sliced or diced
1 bunch of spring onions, chopped
Blend together the following ingredients in a food processor:
Juice of two lemons
¼ cup olive oil
2 Tbsp vinegar
1 small shallot or half a red onion
⅓ cup chives
¼ cup cashews or almonds
1 cup torn fresh basil
1 cup fresh spinach
(If making a milk meal, add ⅓ cup parmesan cheese, if it’s a meat meal, leave it out)
1 tsp salt
Put all your salad ingredients into your serving bowl and pour over the dressing.
Toss together mixing very well.
Serve and enjoy!
My fresh ginger cake is a Pesach staple, and always delicious. A beautiful option for a dessert at the seder or a tea-time treat during the week. Your guests will be amazed that it’s Pesachdik.
1 cup sugar
