Rosh Hashanah Dinner – Appetizer Ideas
1. Pomegranate Apple Salad with Creamy Parmesan Dressing
Originally from Dairy Made Easy, this recipe has cheese in it, so if you are planning a meat based meal, save this one for a dairy lunch. This is even a gluten free recipe that you can add to your menu!
2. Apple and Honey Crostini Recipe
You can use this recipe for a Brunch or dinner. If you are having a non dairy dinner, just leave out the cheese and it is still a great appetizer! Get the crostini recipe.

A lovely appetizer salad, especially on a warm day. It is lovely and symbolic for this time of year. Apples and pomegranates for a sweet new year!
