Pesah Salsa Cruda with Horseradish

I was desperate for something spicy and crunchy yesterday afternoon, on the second day of Pesah. So I improvised the following, and was pleasantly surprised with the results:

  • One tomato
  • Half of an onion (more or less, depending on the size and pungency of the onion; red onion would probably be best)
  • Half of a bell pepper
  • Several leaves of cilantro
  • 1/2 tablespoon of prepared horseradish (the kind that most of us use for maror on the Passover Seder plate)
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pepper to taste
Finely chop tomato, onion, pepper, and cilantro. Combine in a bowl; add horseradish, lime juice, salt and pepper. Mix well. Serve with pieces of whole wheat matzah. Recall the bitterness of slavery while savoring the taste of New World freedom.

חג שמח / Hag Sameah!
