When planning your Passover menus there are a few tricks to keep in mind.

  1. Get your guest list straight. Know who is coming, what they eat, and what they don’t. Even if your guest list is just you and your husband or your kids, plan foods you all love.  There are enough restrictions this holiday to not eat foods you like. 
  2. Plan lots of salads and vegetables. They are easy to make, colorful, delicious and don't need many special Passover modifications.
