True Israeli salad is a mixture of finely chopped fresh, vibrant, vegetables. There are a myriad of variations to this salad. This recipe is as basic as it gets. Feel free to add and combination of finely chopped vegetables, swap in a different variety of onion and/or throw in some fresh herbs.
This salad makes a great fresh side, especially when served with barbecue. It’s also served in a pita to accompany falafel. We have is as part of our first course with Shabbat meals served with challah.
