My faves!! And so perfectly Sukkot.

It is a great metal rolling cart, for in and out of the Sukkah. Great to hold food, drink or paper goods. Year-round I use it to store my onions and potatoes, and odds and ends on the bottom shelf. It comes in a few colors.

Avocado Dill Dip

Use a food processor for ultimate creaminess.
