Mediterranean-Inspired Passover Side Dishes

Holidays, Passover, Recipes
on June 5, 2012

As much as I enjoy Ashkenazi Passover dishes such as matzo farfel, potato kugel and matzo ball soup, I find Mediterranean-inspired Sephardic foods are lighter and more intriguing.

Ancient Jewish cultures of Morocco, Tunisia, Spain, Italy and Portugal offer intense spice-laden dishes that add panache to any Passover table. You can create a menu of both traditional and not-so-traditional items. Be adventurous this year, yet serve your family's favorites. Here are some ideas for additions to your traditional menu.
