Inspired by a friend of mine from LA who uses an actual esrog for this garnish (from her own tree!), I’ve taken the liberty to use a lemon for these “arba minim.” Whether you copy this exactly or create your own “set,” you’re sure to shake things up with your _ish appetizer this Yom To

You will need:

  • long breadsticks herbs for hadassim and aravos scallions lemon/esrog salmon salad


Cut lemon or esrog in half and scoop out the flesh. Fill with salmon salad. Use a strip of scallion to tie the herbs to the breadstick. Lay it next to stuffed lemon/esrog.

Note: To make the salmon salad, I use fresh salmon (use your favorite recipe) and mash lightly with a little mayo and scallions.
