israeli salad

March 29, 2010

I don’t know about you, but for me, the weekend is often the time when I get to enjoy all the gastronomical delights that just don’t fit into a five day work week.

Time simply does not allow for all the food adventures that I often want to squeeze in. This weekend, I more than made up for a lacklustre week in food by fitting in a ten hour (round) road trip, a harvest dinner, and having 12 friends over for brunch. It’s been a blast but by 5.00pm on Sunday I was a little ‘fooded out’.

So, what better way to cap off a three day eating extravaganza than with a light and delightful salad? Just what the doctor ordered:

Israeli Salad

It’s not really worth posting ingredients and directions to this most simple of salads – simply chop some cucumber, fresh tomatoes, and parsley; slice some red onion (I only had white to hand); add some fresh lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper….and call it done. Serve with crunchy pita chips.

I added olives and some of their juices for a kick along with some chopped bell pepper. You could also add feta cheese, or chick peas to really kick this up a notch. Perfect sunny sunday munching.

What do you enjoy eating at the weekend that the weekdays don’t leave time for?

Long breakfasts are my favourite. Preferably involving eggs, bacon, lots of coffee and the crossword.
