DELICIOUS

Description

I love the kind of salad that is jam packed with so many fresh flavors that your taste buds are all over the place trying to take in all the yumminess. This is one of those salads. It’s served on a bed of Israeli Cous Cous, so it’s hearty and perfect if you need a vegetarian option. The combination or fresh and canned corn along with the Edamame add a nice chew to the salad and the sweet cherry tomatoes, crunchy cukes and tons of fresh dill, cilantro and spring onions wake it up and work brilliantly together. Lemon, Tahina and Good Italian olive oil create a citrusy and creamy dressing that will blow your mind. Run don’t walk to grab the ingredients for this salad. You can also add some crumbled feta cheese to the salad or top with your favorite protein. I know your family and guests will love this. Enjoy xxx Chef MM
