Happy Passover to all our friends celebrating the holiday!

Over the years, I've posted a variety of different latke recipes, some more traditional and others more unusual but still appropriate for Passover, Hanukkah or any time you're craving potato pancakes.

For your convenience, here are links to my favorite latke recipes:

Tips for Healthier, Lower-Fat Latkes:  If you're trying to eat healthier but still want to enjoy traditional Jewish foods, here are some easy ways to trim the fat content of latkes, which can be notoriously rich.

Fat-Free Latkes:  Yes, that concept might be anathema to purists, but if you're seriously committed to cutting back on fat and fried foods, this recipe is for you -- and it's surprisingly tasty, too!

Hot & Spicy Potato Latkes: For the chilehead or fiery-foods fanatic who wants to add a peppery twist to this normally mild dish.

Dilly Turnip Latkes:  As the name suggests, these little latkes are made with shredded turnips instead of traditional potato. They're shown in the photo on the right.

Savory Cottage Cheese Latkes:  There are no potatoes in this rich and flavorful alternative to traditional potato pancakes.

And if you want to offer an alternative to the traditional toppings of sour cream and apple sauce, try my recipe for Creamy Cucumber-Jalapeno Sauce, made with Greek yogurt instead of sour cream.

Chag Pesach Sameach!

Zestfully yours,
