7 Species Salad (Salat Shivat HaMinim)
Serves: Varies

Recipe Ingredients:

  • Lettuce, (any kind, but the baby is good)
  • Seeds from 1/2 to 1 ripe pomegranate
  • 6 to 8 figs, checked for bugs and quartered
  • Handful of seedless (or deseeded) grapes, halved or quartered
  • 2 to 4 dates, checked for bugs and sliced
  • Olive oil and balsamic vinegar
    (this gets the olives in, the Torah specifically mentions oil olives so, in theory this could also count for the grapes)
  • Barley and wheat croutons

Optional:

  • Goat cheese
  • Bee or date honey (to get the eretz zavat chalav u'dvash element)
To make the croutons, get some bread (preferably sliced) that has both wheat and barley flour and cut in to bite-sized pieces (2cm to 3cm square) and place on a baking tray or casserole dish.

In a bowl, combine olive oil and some favorite spices, oregano, basil, and/or thyme. Brush the oil and herb mixture over the bread pieces and bake at 200C to 225C (400F to 450F) until the bread feels like croutons.

One can also skip the olive oil and herbs on the croutons and just bake the bread.

Combine everything and enjoy!

If you make a bunch of croutons and buy the supplies, you can put the salad together several times throughout the chag.

Notes: This was posted on Janglo (the Jerusalem Anglos group) by an anonymous poster. I can't say exact proportions but the basic idea is just to put all the fruits on a bed of lettuce and toss. Just make sure that you limit the number of the dates and grapes or it gets too sweet.

To get the wheat and barley in, you need to find a multigrain bread containing both those flours (or make it yourself) and then make some croutons from the bread.
