Those Who Don't like Salted Fish on Sham El Nessim Try These 10 Dishes

Spring is the official 'be happy' time of the year! It’s no longer cold and it’s not too hot yet so the weather is perfect. The best thing about spring is for sure is Sham El Nessim, where we get to take time off to celebrate by coloring eggs and eating special salted fish. I believe, however, holidays should be more about having fun and family time than just about food. So, if you don’t like traditional Sham El Nessim food and the salted fish that people usually eat, here are ten wholesome dishes you can have instead.
