Chimichurri Challah

My friend Michael sent me this recipe to try out. I don’t have access to ramps here in Seattle, as I understand they are best when foraged.  So I googled for substitutes and found a suggestion of green onions.  I made my basic dough, instead of using theirs, then used the food processor to make the filling:

  • 1 bunch of green onions
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp Balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp lemon zest
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes

I rolled out the dough and spread on the filling:


Then rolled it into a tube. I quickly realized that it wasn’t going to stay closed for me to braid. So I coiled it into a beautiful round.


It was delicious and eaten quickly!!


I had some of the filling left over, and my spouse ate it on tortilla chips the next day, then asked me to make more for the next shabbat.
