Haloumi, Fig & Olive salad for Tu B’Shevat

Tu B’Shevat is coming up very quickly, and I’ve been thinking of a few yummy things we can make using the 7 species.  This salad is the perfect side to your Tu B’Shevat lunch, or to be honest, any time when you feel like eating something delicious!

Serves: 1

Ingredients:

  • 1 fig
  • 2 slices haloumi
  • cos lettuce leaves
  • ¼ onion, sliced and caramalised
  • 4 large olives
  • 1 small tomato
  • ¼ lebanese cucumber
  • Pomegranate molasses
  • Olive oil

Instructions:

  1. Like any salad, this is dead easy to make. Fry off your haloumi till it’s nice and golden. Dice up your fig, olives, tomato, cucumber, and the cooked haloumi.
  2. Tear apart your lettuce leaves. You could definitely use any greens here, and as much or as little as you want. Add your other ingredients to the top. Salt & Pepper it.
  3. You could make a simple vinaigrette for this, but I found it was delicious with a tiny splash or olive oil, and a drizzle of pomegranate molasses!
 Notes:

This is a single serve of salad – perfect for lunch. Multiply however you see fit to serve more.

Rosh Hashanah 2016

For Rosh Hashanah this year we climbed a local “mountain” (by name only – it was fairly easy!), to watch the sun set, blow the shofar, and welcome in the new day, and new year! There is something so wonderful about starting the year with the right intentions – our were to keep things simple, put Hashem first, and enjoy the best company possible – family!

After our exploration up the mounting we came home for a scrumptious dinner (another important part of starting the year with the best intentions!!). Seriously. So delicious.

The whole evening was awesome, and for me felt perfectly “right” for us right now.

Anyway, I wanted to share these photos with you of our celebrations.
