Smoked fish dishes are popular with Ashkenazi Jews. A family member served this easy pareve(neutral, non-dairy) spread at a backyard BBQ this summer and I loved it. It’s so easy, great to serve all year round, would be great as an “noshable” (appetizer) for the upcoming Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashanah. You can add or reduce the seasonings based on your taste.

Tu B’Shevat Crostini Noshable with Orange Date Spread

Here is a great “noshable” to serve at your Tu B’Shevat gathering or meal (if you keep Kosher, this should only be served with a dairy meal). It can also be served all year long. I’ve re-purposed the “Orange Date Spread – Filling for Hamantashen” from one of my previous recipes and am now using it to top a crostini spread with goat cheese or on topping a slice of ricotta salata cheese. Enjoy this noshable with “Fruits of Israel Fizz” and you’ll celebrate in style!
