Middle Eastern Salad

This is my go-to salad to serve alongside any Middle Eastern dish, such as lentil soup, curries and stews, or even just on its own. If you’re lazy to go out and dine at your favourite lebanese or syrian restaurant, this salad with a few of your other favourite dishes will not disappoint you.
