Apple, Kohlrabi & Pomegranate Endive Salad with Honey Dijon Dressing

August 20, 2013

I can't believe how close we are to the holiday season. I'm really excited about starting a new year. Beginnings are so full of hope and opportunities. I wonder where this one will take me.

 Of course, the Jewish new year would not be complete without a recipe involving apples.

So I'm sharing with you a delicious Apple, Kohlrabi & Pomegranate Endive Salad with Honey Dijon Dressing. This really is the perfect appetizer to being your meal with. It's light and flavorful, sweet and tangy. The slight bitterness from the endive leaves are nicely offset by the delicate sweetness of the dressing. Try it, you'll be pleasantly surprised at this unusual combination.

 I have a few other Rosh Hashana recipes you can peek at:

Pomegranate, Almond and Raisin Couscous

Chocolate Covered Pomegranate Seeds

This also means that it's the blog's upcoming birthday! How exciting.
