2. Harriet’s Charoset
A traditional dish at any Passover Seder (the celebratory holiday meal to kick off the 8-day festival), charoset is a perfect complement to any meal. It combines tart apples with nuts (typically walnuts), cinnamon, sugar, and sweet wine or grape juice, resulting in a light yet sweet side dish that pairs well with everything, especially matzo. Interesting fact: the dish, which looks like a paste, is meant to resemble the mortar and brick made by the Jews when they enslaved in Egypt.
