Passover Recipe: Horseradish and Apple Salad

Written by

The Vilna Vegetarian Cookbook was first published in 1938.
Originally published in Yiddish, The Vilna Vegetarian Cookbook was discovered in a rare books collection at the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research in New York City. Wendy Waxman and Barbara Mazur were so inspired by the book that they worked with YIVO to have it translated and republished.

The cookbook is the work of Fania Lewando, a restaurateur from Vilna, Lithuania who’s vegetarian riffs on Jewish food attracted the creative class of Vilna to her restaurant. Lewando was an early advocate for health and the 400 vegetarian recipes in the book feel decades ahead of her time. 

This recipe for Apple & Horseradish salad is perfect for Passover.
