The dish I created this week is inspired by the idea of standing at the precipice of the Promised Land. The simple walnuts represent the wilderness. A long stream of honey symbolizes the Jordan River. The yogurt and honey are also symbolic of Israel being described as the “land of milk and honey.”


  • 2 cups organic plain yogurt (dairy or vegan)
  • 3 tbsp. plain walnuts
  • 3-4 tbsp. honey
  • 2-3 different organic stone fruits, chopped


  1. Wash fruit thoroughly and chop into small pieces.
  2. On a platter or bowl, place walnuts along one side and yogurt on opposite side to represent the separation of the wilderness and the Promised Land.
  3. Top yogurt with fruit and fold slightly, if desired.
  4. Add honey to middle of plate, between nuts and yogurt mixture.
