The Daily Meal's editors, contributors, and readers dig into some pretty great restaurants, festivals, and meals. There's not always enough time to give a full review of a restaurant or describe in depth why a place, its food, and the people who prepare it are noteworthy, so Snackshot of the Day does what photographs do best, rely on the image to do most of the talking.

Today's Snackshot is of a seder plate. The seder, or symbolic Passover meal, is typically held on the first and/or second night of Passover. The seder plate has foods on it that represent various parts of the Passover story. It includes marror, or horseradish, which is to remind Jews of the bitter slavery in Egypt, and a lamb bone to represent the sacrifices offered. Karpas, or parsley, gets dipped in salt water to represent the tears, and charoset represents the brick and mortor the Jews used to build the pyramids in Egypt during slavery.
