I love Middle Eastern food. I truly think it's one of my favorite international foods to eat. Ok, so maybe sushi truly is my favorite, but I don't think I'll be trying to prepare that at home anytime soon...... not unless Chef Morimoto shows up to teach me how ;)
So I decided to make a middle eastern salad that I have always loved the taste of. It's super easy to make and it's healthy too!I know many people are afraid to cook outside of their comfort zone, but it's good to learn how to prepare other types of foods and who knows, you just might enjoy it a the same time!!
