Mexican beef stew

Mexican beef stew

This is such a fun alternative to cholent! Especially in the summer when lighter flavors are welcome (as opposed to winter comfort food) this fresh lime flavor will wake your taste buds right up and may even encourage you to take a walk after lunch instead of a long nap! No one likes a leftover cholent, but I am sure there will be requests for this stew’s leftovers.

Enlarged Israeli salad

I love Israeli salad but it is very time consuming! Here is an alternative that is just as crunchy, fresh and flavorful but hardly any work at all. I used goat feta cheese for this because I love the flavor (and it is much less salt) but feel free to use regular feta cheese or Bulgarian cheese.
