Salad therapy – Arabian delight

Admittedly my trip to Dubai has proven to be a bit of a challenge for my elder sister Magi as to what to make for lunch everyday.  She enjoys cooking as well (my nieces can attest to that) and has made me a different salad everyday along with a couple of vegetarian subjis.  Today she introduced me to a dressing which I hadn’t considered before and is definitely going to form part of my repertoire moving forward.  I would like to share this with you as I thoroughly enjoyed it and hope you do to.

What do I need to make it?

  • 1 packet rocket leaves
  • 1/4 large cucumber peeled and cubed
  • 6-8 small red radishes finely sliced
  • 4-5 large green pitted olives sliced
  • Handful of grapes – we had red seedless but I am sure green would work just as well
  • Salt and pepper to taste (optional)
  • Dollop of mutabbal (aka baba ghanouj – roasted egg plant with garlic, olive oil and tahini sauce)

How much will I make?

Enough for 2 as a main meal or 4 as a side dish

How do I make it?

Place rocket leaves in a bowl and sprinkle other ingredients.  Adjust seasoning but bear in mind that the mutabbal has enough salt.  Serve the salad in a bowl with a dollop of mutabbal and enjoy.
