You can make this coleslaw in advance or right before. I love my coleslaw crunchy so I add the dressing right before but it can last up to 4 days dressed in the fridge and taste divine.
This fish really tasted like butter. The trick is to buy really fresh fish, it’s so worth it! The jam can be made up to 5 days in advance, just bring to room temperature and place on top of fish and add fresh mint right before serving.
Halloumi cheese salad can be found in most cafes in Israel. It is delicious but often the same. Here is a twist on the usual restaurant salad that can be pulled together in minutes! Tuscany spice blend can be found in all spice shops and sometimes in the supermarket. If you don’t live in Israel but come to visit be sure to pick it up at any spice shop or market, it is world’s better than the other versions and not too heavy to bring back!
If you are serving these for Friday night dinner, only put the lamb on your hot plate or warming drawer 15 minutes before you eat. (but have it be room temperature when you put it in). Place the mint paste on right before you serve for best flavor and color
This recipe is fun to play around with. Add more fruit and vegetables and proteins if you wish! My top picks would be fresh mozzarella cheese, celery and persimmons (all together!)
