I just threw out a lot of food and I don't want to do that next year. Please suggest recipes that will help me use up Passover leftovers. Difficulty level: kosher for Passover.

Every year I host a Seder for Passover and end up with a vat of leftovers. Most of them we manage to eat or freeze over the intervening days but 2 dishes pose a problem: charoset and Israeli salad. The charoset is minced nuts, raisin, and apples. The salad is diced tomatoes, onion, cucumber, and other vegetables, with parsley and mint, and dressed with olive oil and vinegar. Neither dish is cooked, so it's not possible to freeze them.
This year I found a recipe for Charoset muffins made with matzo meal that was pretty good, but I still ended up throwing a lot out. Please suggest other recipes or ideas for using up these leftovers. We keep kosher for Passover, so I can't use regular flour and so forth, and by the time Passover is over the food is not really safe to eat.
