A recipe passed to me by my Aunt Linda, Charoset is a traditional Jewish food eaten alongside matzah at the Passover Sedar. A combination of fruit and nuts, this sweet mix is a shame to be eaten only once a year! Stuffed charoset chicken breasts, charoset lettuce wraps or even paired alongside a bit of savory brisket are just a few of the different ways to eat this healthy side dish.
