Since this is a dairy challah, it doesn’t usually find itself on my Shabbat table. However, if you ever have some extra challah dough, I highly recommend using it to make this challah. Try it for seudah shlishit, the third Shabbat meal, in the summer months!
The creamy ricotta with the savory crunch of the pine nuts and the beautiful green of the spinach and the basil come together to make the most spectacular challah filling, and the gorgeous braiding technique shown here brings it all together in the most perfect way.
P.S. This is also a great challah idea for the holiday of Shavuot or Chanukah, when it is traditional to eat dairy foods.
