You’ve already got the applesauce and sour cream covered. Maybe you’ve even chopped up some scallions and mixed together some cinnamon and sugar. But what do you serve with latkes that’s more substantial than a garnish? Here are some ideas.
This bright salad will add color to your table, and the sweetness of the beets and bite of the onions are a good complement to the earthiness of the latkes.
We’ve already espoused the virtues of coupling latkes with lentil soup. If you’re not in the mood for soup, this lentil salad, which can be made vegetarian, is as good a pairing.
Just imagine eating spoonfuls of creamy carrot soup—supplemented by lemon-tahini dollop and crispy chickpeas—between bites of crunchy, lacey-edged latkes.
Date syrup (or honey, if you prefer) serves as the foundation of this marinade and lacquers the salmon with a sweet-salty glaze as it cooks.
Any roast chicken will go great with latkes. With apple pieces cooked along with the chicken, this recipe shares some of the same flavors as the applesauce already on your table.
