In Middle Eastern cuisine, salads come in many variations. Fattoush and Tabbouleh (my personal favorite) are the most popular. Most Middle Eastern salads contain some combination of the following ingredients; cucumber, tomato, onions and parsley. The nice thing about this salad, is that these are pretty much the only ingredients you need! This cucumber salad w/beets and chickpeas is not only a staple in Iraq, but it has also become a staple in my house. My husband would eat this salad every single day if it was up to him. I’m not joking either!
Baba ghanoush has to be my second favorite dip, hummus being my number one, of course. Baba ghanoush is a very popular appatizer in the middle east just like hummus. It is surprisingly easy to make and contains very few ingredients. I’m a big fan of minimal ingredients, both when it comes to eating a food and making a dish at home. It just makes life easier to say the least. The typical baba ghanoush is made of roasted eggplant, tahini, garlic, lemon juice, olive oil and salt. That’s it! Very basic ingredients make the best foods in my opinion.
I would’ve never thought that the combination of coconut and curry flavors would pair so well together.
