  • About

I believe it is the variety of vegetables and the shape and size of how each vegetable is cut combined with the dressing that make this salad so popular. It can be offered with a variety of entrees made with lamb, beef, poultry, or seafood. You can even add grilled chicken or shrimp to the salad, and it becomes a meal of its own.


Specialty Ingredients

  • Sumak, found at specialty markets or online.


Prepare Ahead

You can prepare the croutons in advance and store them in an airtight container for days. For freshest vegetables, rinse and store them ahead of time. The salad can be prepared 1 day in advance. Serve as directed.
