Unspecified Nation of Origin Middle Eastern Salad
I’ve always known this as an Israeli Salad, but apparently, Persians, Turks and Lebanese also claim it as their own. So, if your country is full of dudes with a massive amount of chest hair that only button their shirts halfway, you’re probably familiar with this salad.
It’s super easy, super low calorie and can be eaten with breakfast, lunch dinner or as a snack.
