Lebanese Salad (Salata)

My traditional Lebanese Salad (salata) is a crisp salad of romaine, cucumbers, onion, and tomato with a garlicky, lemony vinaigrette.Mouthwatering! We eat this one almost every day.


For the salad:

8 cups coarsely chopped romaine lettuce

1 large tomato, coarsely diced, or 1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes, halved

2 Persian cucumbers, cut in wedges

1/2 small red onion or vidalia onion, thinly sliced

10 leaves fresh mint, chopped

For the vinaigrette:

1 large clove minced

Juice of 1 lemon

1 teaspoon kosher salt

Few grinds black pepper

1 teaspoon dried mint

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil


1. In a large salad bowl, combine the lettuce, tomato, cucumbers, onion, and fresh mint.

2. In a small bowl, whisk the garlic, lemon juice, salt, pepper, dried mint, and olive oil until combined and emulsified. Pour over the salad, toss to coat evenly, and serve.
