Prosciutto Charoses Salad
Though noticeably non-kosher, this sweet and salty recipe adds a tasty new twist to the traditional Jewish charoses recipe.
INGREDIENTS | SERVES 6
2 cups Washington apple, shredded
3 tablespoons sweet red wine
1 tablespoon honey
¼ teaspoon cinnamon, ground
4 ounces sliced prosciutto, diced
¾ cup walnuts, finely chopped
Place the shredded apple in a mixing bowl. Lightly pat the apple with a paper towel to remove excess liquid.
Stir the wine, honey, and cinnamon together in a small bowl. Pour over apples and mix thoroughly.
Add walnuts and prosciutto to the bowl. Mix well. Serve salad immediately or chill up to 1 hour before serving. Mix well before serving.
Charoses is a Jewish recipe served during Passover Seder. The shredded apple and dressing creates a sticky salad with an almost paste-like consistency that represents the straw-free mortar ancient Jewish slaves used for construction in Egypt. Adding prosciutto to the charoses balances the sweet flavors with the salty pork. However, as pork is definitely non-kosher, never serve this dish at Passover or to anyone who follows kosher laws.
