Salads are a great item to serve with any meal, especially when having a lot of guests. Not only are they healthy, but they are colorful and enhance the look of any table. Perfect for adding variety to the meal and ideal when guests are vegetarian.
This salad is very popular in Israel. It is served in a pita pocket sandwich with fried chick pea balls (“falafel”) or with lamb or turkey (“shwarma”). The salad is also served with the shwarma that is not in a sandwich. The meat is cooked on a spit with wonderful spices.
I love how versatile ratatouille is. It tastes good both cold and warm. You can serve it over rice or quinoa for a filling vegetarian meal, or alongside chicken, meat or fish for a flavorful, light side.
