As Pesach approaches, we scramble to whip up healthy options while also clearing out our pantries. However, it’s easy to come up with a dish that checks off both goals. Whenever I want to clear out my pantry, Pesach season or not, I create a new type of salad. Keep in mind that the definition of a salad is a blend of plant-based ingredients that includes whatever you want. I came up with it by literally throwing together whatever items I found in my pantry. You can do the same by combining the following components: • A grain — e.g., rice, pasta, quinoa, farfel, farro, etc. • Texture — e.g., nuts and/or seeds for crunch • Fresh veggies — e.g., celery, peppers, tomatoes, and/or red onion • An herb — dried or fresh• Canned and/or frozen vegetables — e.g., corn or green beans • A bean — any variety • Dressing It may feel daunting, but there’s no better time to be creative than when you’re limited to whatever ingredients you have on hand. And there’s no way to mess up this dish because there’s no right or wrong way to do it. Enjoy!
