Zucchini Latkes

 Zucchini Latkes
My husband, Avi, and I carry prepare these delicious latkes with our children, Sara, 10, and Yaakov, 5. This year, Sara is old enough to help make the latkes (the oil can get very hot, so be careful). I serve my latkes with sour cream, cottage cheese and applesauce, plus a salad on the side.
