Lebanese summer salad recipes (and many ways to eat your mint)



Lebanese salad recipes are bright, light, and always high on flavor. Plenty of crunch too. Oh, and don’t forget the mint! It’s everywhere in Lebanese recipes, especially summer salads, most of which happily end in the word “mint.” As you collect all of the good stuff we’ve been waiting for all year from the farmers markets near you, or your own garden (God bless you), consider:

Tabbouleh Salad, and its Quinoa cousin
(see how to prep your parsley the proper way here)

Cucumber and Tomato Salad with Mint

Radish and Arugula Salad

Yogurt Cucumber Salad with Garlic and Mint
(my favorite)

Lemony Potato Salad with Mint
(your favorite…this recipe gets a lot of attention!)

Grilled Corn Salad with Feta and Mint
(as Geralyn says: addictive)

Fattoush Salad

    Hi Maureen,
    My daughters and I love your website. We are planning a bridal shower next Sunday for my daughter and her request for food was Middle Eastern, of course. I am going to be making tabouli, humus, grilled whole chicken, grape leaves, andbaba ghanoush for 25.

    We are thinking of ordering Mamoul and baklava from Shatila in Dearborn. Any bridal shower suggestions that would make it more middle eastern? We are picking your website for ideas.

    Love it,
    Janice K.
