As the weather gets warmer and the days get longer, we long for fresh vibrant salads to brighten up our meals, especially when entertaining for Shabbat and holidays.
Don't let salad haters get you down, prove that salads are not the sad diet food no one really wants. Let the salads take center stage. Use great quality fruits and vegetables with gorgeous, vibrant colors and you will find the possibilities are endless.
Shavuot arrives at one of the most fabulous times of the year. The weather is gorgeous and the most amazing spring produce fills the shelves at local produce and farmers markets. Crisp salads and tangy dressings offer a perfect counterpoint to the many sweet dishes served on Shavuot.
