With the temperatures starting to rise outside and summer gatherings about to begin, Anoush Catering would like to offer you a light and fresh summer dish to offer your guests at your next BBQ or weekend dinner party.
Toasted Bread Salad
1 Khoubiz (flat bread)
6 leaves cos (romaine) lettuce or 4 leaves other lettuce, crisped
1 slender green cucumber
2 medium-sized tomatoes
½ cup chopped spring onion
½ cup chopped parsley
¼ cup chopped fresh mint
1 cup chopped sweet green peppers
1 cup ba’le (chickweed or purslane), optional
1 clove garlic
1 teaspoon salt
½ cup lemon juice
½ cup olive oil
freshly ground black pepper
1. Toast khoubiz under a hot grill until golden brown. Break into small pieces, or cut into small squares using kitchen scissors. Keep aside.
2. Shred lettuce or break into small pieces. Peel cucumber, quarter lengthwise and cut into chunks. Cut tomatoes into small cubes. Prepare other salad vegetable ingredients. When picking the ba’le, select leaves near the top of the stalks and the young leafy ends.
3. Crush garlic in a bowl with the salt and mix to a paste, stir in remaining dressing ingredients, then beat thoroughly with a fork.
4. Combine bread and prepared vegetable ingredients and herbs in a salad bowl, pour on dressing, toss well and serve.
