How To Make Israeli Salad – the Vegetables

When I make an Israeli salad, I stick to the classics – cucumber, tomato, celery and green pepper. It is supposed to be simple so I don’t usually add things like cheese or even herbs. Sometimes it is nice to have an easy side dish to prepare, but also a side dish that fairly low key. I look at an Israeli as a simple way to include some vegetables into a meal without a lot of hassle. It especially makes for a great side dish when the meal is heavy. It is a nice counterbalance.


How To Make Israeli Salad – Chop and Toss
