Chicken Kebab - Joojeh KebabRoasted meat and veggies on a stick are an ideal meal to fix over a fire. The succulent chunks of chicken are sealed overnight in a tangy marinade of lime juice, olive oil, and flavorful spices. The meat is roasted to perfection on skewers, then paired with fresh vegetables, like whole cherry tomatoes, onion quarters, and sliced bell peppers.
Israeli Potato SaladWhat would a picnic be without potato salad? This version combines tender red potatoes, peas, shredded carrots, diced boiled eggs, and Israeli-style pickles in a creamy spiced mayo dressing. A little dash of pickle juice gives the dressing the right zing. Sprinkle a bit of sweet paprika on top for color.
Spicy Eggplant SalsaIf you are a salsa aficionado, wait until you dip your chips or crackers in this! Along with the usual tomatoes, this salsa includes diced eggplant, green olives, onions, and briny capers. All these ingredients are coated in a spicy vinaigrette. Make it ahead of time to give the veggies and spices time to marinate to perfection. Serve with crisp matzo crackers or pita chips.
Chocolate HalvahHalvah is a dense confection that is often made with tahini, like this Jewish-inspired version. The recipe starts by melting sugar in a pan, and then mixing it with vanilla, sesame tahini, and a pinch of salt. Then, melted chocolate is swirled into the mix to create a soft, marbleized block of candy. If you like, add some fresh pistachios to give your halvah a little extra crunch.
