It’s so hot this week in Southern California. I am living on salad and smoothies. I have a hearty salad recipe here that makes a very satisfying meal. I love this dressing…the saltiness of the feta, combined with the tangy lemon juice, and earthy cumin make for a great combination. The mint adds a fresh summer flavor to the salad. Enjoy!
For the salad:
3 cups Romaine lettuce, chopped
2 Persian cucumbers, chopped into small pieces
1 cup sugar plum tomatoes, cut in half
1⁄2 cup cup canned garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
2 tablespoons mint, chopped
2 tablespoons parsley, chopped
1⁄2 cup pita chips, crushed into small bits
For the dressing:
1⁄2 cup mayonnaise
1⁄2 cup sour cream
1⁄2 cup feta cheese
1⁄2 teaspoon cumin powder
Dash of black pepper
Dash of garlic powder
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Salt to taste
1. Place lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes, garbanzo beans, mint, parsley, and pita chips into a large bowl. Set aside.
2. Using a fork stir mayonnaise, sour cream, feta cheese, cumin powder, black pepper, garlic powder, lemon juice and salt in a medium sized bowl until well combined.
3. Pour desired amount of dressing over salad, and toss to combine.
4. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
