Holy Week Begins
Today Holy week begins.
During Holy Week, Christians commemorate the Passion of Christ. As the faithful, on Palm Sunday, we remember and dramatize Christ’s triumphal entrance into Jerusalem on a donkey. In Jesus’ time, a huge crowd assembled, put their cloaks or branches on the ground, and waved palm branches, acclaiming Christ as the King of Israel, the Son of David. We now wave our palm branches and sing as the priest enters the church.
Here are the special days in Holy Week:
Palm Sunday the day Jesus arrived in Jerusalem.
Holy Thursday (Maundy Thursday), Last Supper and the betrayal by Judas.
Good Friday (Holy Friday), the arrest, trial, crucifixion, death and burial of Jesus Christ.
Holy Saturday, the Sabbath on which Jesus rested in the grave.
With that said, I thought I might continue the green theme, with it being Palm Sunday and all. I decided to go with a salad. Yes, a big beautiful healthy.
Kale (one bag)
shredded carrots (one small bag)
2 cups blueberries
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1/2 cup golden raisins or dried cranberries
2 cups Raspberry vinegarette
Put Kale and carrots in a large bowl. Add Vinaigrette and place in the fridge overnight. When ready to serve toss salad and add blueberries, almonds and cranberries.
Note: Because the Kale is so hearty you can dress this days in advance.
