Israeli Salad

Ingredients

Salad:

  • 2 large cucumbers, peeled and chopped
  • 2 large tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 red or yellow bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1/2 red onion, sliced thin
  • 1/2 carrot, grated
  • 1 head of romaine lettuce, chopped
  • 1/4 cup roasted pine nuts
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese

Dressing:

  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground marjoram
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground oregano
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • Coarse black pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Toss the vegetables and herbs together in a large bowl. Top salad with roasted pine nuts and feta cheese. (Note: I roast pine nuts by placing in a small skillet over medium heat. Shake skillet occasionally until pine nuts are golden.)
  2. Whisk the dressing ingredients together and pour over salad right before serving.
