Persian Salad

Persian Salad

Serves: 4

Kid Friendly Tasks: Dressing Shaker

Technically this is a version of Fatoush which is a salad I totally adore. However, my recipe lacks the awesome croutons of the original generally because I don’t have Middle Eastern bread frequently on hand. That said, you could serve this with any stale (or toasted) strong tasting bread and it would be excellent. I could eat this every day and twice on Sundays.

Kid Friendly Tasks: Spice Taster

We have a Lebanese restaurant in town that I really like, but haven’t been to in many years. The reasons are the usual suspects, hard to eat out with three kids and because the prices are just high to me. This dish for example is $15, which for a dish based on ground chicken (which is all of $4 a pound at farmer’s market prices) is just too steep to me. So, in my usual thrifty style, I perfected it at home. Now I don’t need to eat there (which is a pity because I’m still working on the loveliness that is their lentil soup) and can instead have this awesome dish in just a half hour.
