This has been a staple at our family Seders ever since I can remember. This is my mother’s creation and it is something our entire family looks forward to. Forgetting to serve this on Passover is just as bad as forgetting to serve pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving (yes I was guilty of that once).
- 6 large onions, chopped
- 2 carrots chopped
- 2 stalks of celery chopped
