When Rosh Hashanah the Jewish new year rolls around, sugar, and specifically honey, often is on the menu. It's a kind of edible prayer, a hopeful way of attracting sweet things to one's life in the year to come.
That's why this salad is based on a sweet vegetable the carrot and flavored with honey and dates.
But you don't have to celebrate Rosh Hashanah to love this recipe.
Refreshing and simple to prepare, it's a great and healthy end-of-summer treat no matter what your faith.
