Bitter Greens Salad

A simple salad of arugula is an easy way to get some traditional bitter greens on the table.

Matzo Ball Soup

This year, make a comforting bowl of matzo ball soup [1] from the pros at Carnegie Deli.

Halibut Gravlax

Salmon gravlax can take several days to cure, but not halibut gravlax [2], which only requires a day. Serve it as an appetizer with matzo, cream cheese, and dill fronds.

Steamed Carrots With Olive Oil and Lemon

Perfectly steamed carrots with olive oil and lemon juice [3] make an ideal Spring side dish, especially alongside a meaty main course.

Rosemary-Roasted Leg of Lamb

A large, succulent leg of lamb [4] roasted over a bed of rosemary is an ideal Passover main course.

Mashed Rutabagas

For an interesting alternative to potatoes, try mashed rutabagas [5]. If you've never tried a rutabaga, it tastes a little bit like a cross between a cabbage and a turnip.


Low and slow braised brisket [6] nearly cooks itself and ought to be made in advanced, as it is better reheated the next day.

Matzo Brei

A comforting dish of matzo brei is a Passover must! For a nontraditional approach, try this version with lox, eggs, and onions [7].

Coconut Macaroons

Coconut macaroons [8] are a classic Passover dessert. Whip up a batch and add kosher chocolate chips, if you'd like.

Chocolate-Covered Almond Matzo Toffee

Matzo might have been difficult to nosh on — until now. Family will tear through a platter of this chocolate-covered almond matzo toffee [9] in no time.
