Rosh Hashanah is finally here, which means a short work week and a festive atmosphere. Unfortunately, for a lot of people, it means a ton of cooking. Luckily for me, we don’t host dinner, so I’m only obligated to make a side or dessert.
If you’re like me, you usually leave the decision about what you’re making to the last minute, allowing you to fight it out with everyone in the supermarket the morning of. This year, I decided to compile a list of recipes to make that choice just a little bit easier. Now to pick just one…
- Beet, Carrot, and Pomegranate Salad from FoodieCrush – This salad is absolutely beautiful and will definitely bring a splash of color to the table. The presentation is even better if you can get some unique, colorful carrot and beet varieties. I love that the pomegranate seeds add a touch of festiveness. If you’re having a dairy meal, goat cheese would be an excellent add in.
- Apple Pomegranate Salad with Honey Balsamic Dressing from The Recipe Critic – Here you have your apples and your pomegranate seeds – the Rosh Hashanah dynamic duo. This salad is easy to make, but super classy, and you could leave out the feta to make it parve.
- Apple + Fennel Winter Salad from Forest & Fauna – So what if it’s September and still 90 degrees out? This winter salad is perfect for your Rosh Hashanah table. This salad is another apple and pomegranate combo, fancied up with a fennel bulb.
- Oreo Cheesecake Apple Truffles from How Does She? – How adorable are these truffles? Ofir loves when I make regular Oreo truffles, so I know this will be his choice. These would definitely make a cute conversation starter, and they’re much easier to make than they look.
- Salted Pomegranate Chocolate Fudge from Honest & Tasty – This decadent fudge is right on theme with the addition of pomegranate seeds. Sweet, tart and salty together? Sign me up. This could also be made dairy free if you used parve chocolate chips.
- Apple Shaped Cupcakes from Make and Takes – These cute cupcakes would be such a hit with kids. The recipe just calls for a box mix, or you could sub in your favorite cupcake recipe.
- Woven Dried Fruit Tart from Martha Stewart – How gorgeous is this tart, complete with Magen David crust? This beauty will definitely score you some points with the family. If you use a dairy free crust and leave out the heavy cream from the egg wash, this could be a parve dessert.
So ends my little recipe roundup. I hope everyone found something to make! Wishing everyone a Shana Tova, and may you all have delicious meals to celebrate! 🙂
