The final days of the nine days culminate with a difficult fast. I have read and written about the best foods to eat before a fast. I’m not sure if any of it works and everyone has their own special twist or tip for surviving a long summer day with no food or drinks. Personally, I find it tough (although I am embarrassed to complain when all we need to do is fast to commemorate such troubling history of the Jewish people) and I stick to some classic hydrating dishes and flavors that I think help, like cold soup, watermelon, sorbet, honey and lemons. Here is my menu, please share yours.

Greek Yogurt Gazpacho
Cedar Planked Salmon with Dill Sauce
Couscous with Pinenuts
Beet, Avocado, Goat Cheese and Arugula Salad
Watermelon Sorbet
