    In my family, two items are a must for Easter: the jajikh (similar to the Spinach salad you listed but made with green chard), and the peiaz, which is a dry salad made with diced hard-boiled eggs, spring (green) garlic, parsley, mint and of course salt and pepper.

    In addition, eojjah (little egg omelets with herbs fried in olive oil) and yogurt soup are traditional for the Easter Eve dinner (khetoom).

    I know that, in other parts of Armenia, it is traditional to serve rice with raisins.
