Passover: Karpas Salad

Karpas salad

This is a really easy, yummy salad filled with lots of karpas or related ingredients. The karpas course of the seder includes a vegetable (often parsley or potatoes) that is symbolic of spring and then dipped in salt water, representative of the Israelites tears. This salad can be served. If you eat light foods during your seder before the main meal, this is an easy addition to the meal that can be quickly prepared. Also, scroll down for my other Passover recipes including sweets and savory dishes.


1 bunch scallions, thinly sliced
1 bunch celery, chopped
1 bunch parsley, minced
1 bunch cilantro, minced
1 bunch dill, minced
