This Salata Falahiyeh is something that’s pretty much always around in our house. We love eating this even just plain with bread and of course with meals. Salata Falahiyeh translates to a farmer/village salad which tend to be made of simple and minimal ingredients. Think of this as the Arab pico de gallo – instead of cilantro and lime, we use mint and lemon. We also add pepper and olive oil.

Truth be told, this salad is so simple and not in need of a “recipe”, think of this as a basic guideline to asuper simple salad. Since there are so few ingredients here, make sure you find the best possible to ensure the most flavorful outcome.

What to eat this Salata Falahiyeh with

This salad goes great with just about everything, even just using it to fill up some warm pita bread! But I personally think this salad is delicious with fish like my blackened salmon with walnut date gremolata, seared scallops and chicken dishes like my Greek chicken or some chicken shawarma!
