It’s too hot to cook, so just toss these together with a simple vinaigrette and you’re good to go

Peaches and Tomatoes

Forget tomatoes and corn. "I think this is an amazing combination because the peaches are so sweet and the tomatoes have that sourness to them," Yonan said. "With a little salt and pepper, you have a really nice combo. Those can carry you." Toss with some olive oil if it’s your thing, some feta for the cheese lovers, and call it a day. Or, blend the two fruits together into a cold soup, "which is basically a smoothie that you eat out of a bowl," Yonan said.

Shredded Carrots and Beets

You don’t have to actually cook beets to eat them, although roasted beets are a favorite of the staff (especially at ABC Kitchen). Yonan, however, also favors the gritty, bright texture of shredded carrots and beets. "I do a carrot soup with quick pickle beets in the book, but I love to make a Moroccan-style salad where you grate the carrots and the beets on the fine side of the box grater, raw," Yonan said. "Then you just toss them with a little orange juice, a little olive oil, and a good Middle Eastern spice blend or cumin." (See the Orange Za’atar Dressing recipe on the next slide). The result? An earthy salad with a touch of brightness from the citrus and a deep red hue thanks to beets’ tendency to stain everything.

Orange Za'atar Dressing

Makes about 1 1/4 cups

1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon tahini
1 teaspoon za'atar (a spice blend with sumac, thyme, sesame)
1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Combine all the ingredients in a small glass jar, screw on the lid, and shake to combine. Store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.

Sugar Snap Peas and Barley

Sometimes, we need some carbs in our lives. Enter barley, something just a touch heftier for a summer salad. "Barley is one of those things I love to have around already cooked," Yonan said. "I make a big pot of it on the weekends and I might freeze it in individual little Ziploc bags, and then I like to use it as a base."

Add to that base a hefty amount of thinly sliced sugar snap peas, a dash of sesame dressing, and if you really want, other vegetables to bulk it up (peas, beans, etc.). But the sugar snap peas and barley combination is the key; "[barley] gives this sort of backbone of carbs to the crunch of sugar snaps," Yonan said.

Lemon Chile Vinaigrette

This simple and versatile recipe can top off most two-ingredient salads, but Yonan suggests the tomato peach to match the acidity of the dressing.

makes about 1 cup
1 clove garlic
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more to taste
1/3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (from 2 to 3 large lemons)
1/4 cup Chile Oil, homemade or store-bought
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons honey
Freshly ground black pepper

Smash the garlic with the side of a chef’s knife, sprinkle with the salt, and finely chop the two together. Smear it with the side of the knife to create a paste, and transfer it to a small glass jar.

Add the lemon juice, chile oil, olive oil, mustard, honey, and several grinds of black pepper. Screw on the jar’s lid and shake to combine. Taste and add more salt as needed. Refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.


Easy Tabbouleh Salad (Vegan)

Want to know what my most requested recipe is? It’s this Easy Tabbouleh Salad – a deliciously simple dish to make to take along to a BBQ or pot luck dinner and the perfect accompaniment to my Oven Baked Chicken Shawarma.

Do you have a go to recipe you make when you are asked to bring a salad to a party or barbecue? This is mine. (Actually I have two – the other is my Tuna Rice Salad.) And it is one of those recipes where, whenever I make it, I am constantly asked for the recipe. In fact, it was recipes like this one that became the catalyst for starting this blog (No more writing recipes down – I can just point people in the direction of my blog), so quite how this salad has only just made it to the blog, I’m not quite sure!

Tabbouleh is a lovely Middle Eastern vegetarian salad dish, usually comprised of bulgur wheat (or sometimes couscous), tomatoes, onions and herbs.

I have made this Easy Tabbouleh Salad many times with both couscous and bulgur wheat and I am utterly convinced that the bulgur wheat version is far nicer, in fact I really do think bulgur wheat is far nicer than couscous full stop and usually have it instead of couscous with tagines and other Middle Eastern dishes. If you can’t tolerate gluten, you can easily adapt this by using the same quantity of quinoa instead (or check out my gluten free Pomegranate and Quinoa Tabbouleh).

This is the perfect kind of salad to go with barbecue food – and ideal if you are asked to ‘bring a salad’ – it can be made way ahead of time, if you need it too (in fact it tastes nicer if made the night before, as all the flavours get to mix and mingle), keeps well in imperfect conditions (unlike the mayo covered potato salad that I always worry has been out in the sun just a little too long, or the limp looking lettuce that has gone soggy in its dressing) and is easily transportable – just shove it in a plastic box and you are good to go!

On that point tabbouleh is also brilliant picnic food for the same reason – I often make this for picnics and get a lot of jealous glances when I do! And it is therefore also great for work lunches too – make a big batch of this on a Sunday night and you won’t be sorry – just eat it as it is or add a cooked chicken breast, grilled salmon fillet or crumble over some feta!

Not only does this Easy Tabbouleh Salad go brilliantly with BBQ food, it is also incredibly good as a side dish to Mediterranean and Middle Eastern dishes such as my Oven Baked Chicken Shawarma that I shared last week – these two dishes together, honestly – match made in heaven. And add in some of my 5 Minute Homemade Hummus and there will be all sorts of plate licking going on (yep, sorry in advance about that – you just won’t be able to help yourself!!).

This recipe is a great free from recipe too as it is dairy free, egg free, vegetarian and vegan friendly AND easy to adapt to be gluten free by swapping the bulgur wheat for quinoa. (Another reason why it goes down so well at parties) and it’s pretty healthy too – full of goodness from the veggies, herbs, olive oil and wholegrain bulgur wheat.

How to cook perfect bulgur wheat

One little note about bulgur wheat – please, please, please ignore the packet instructions, which always tell you to cook the bulgur wheat for waaaay too long, so you end up getting a gloopy mess that sticks to the pan and doesn’t look or taste that great. My method is very simple and results in perfect bulgur wheat every time. Simply place the bulgur wheat in a pan together with double the quantity of boiling water (e.g. in this recipe 200g bulgur wheat, 400ml water), bring back to the boil, clamp on a lid and turn the heat off completely (move off the burner if you are on electric), then leave for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes all the water will have been absorbed and with a quick fluff with a fork you will have perfectly cooked bulgur wheat – easy peasy style!

With this recipe you will need the bulgur wheat to be cold, which can be easily achieved using cold water, or make the bulgur wheat in advance and allow to cool.

And it is therefore also great for work lunches too – make a big batch of this on a Sunday night and you won’t be sorry – just eat it as it is or add a cooked chicken breast, grilled salmon fillet or crumble over some feta!

Not only does this Easy Tabbouleh Salad go brilliantly with BBQ food, it is also incredibly good as a side dish to Mediterranean and Middle Eastern dishes such as my Oven Baked Chicken Shawarma that I shared last week – these two dishes together, honestly – match made in heaven. And add in some of my 5 Minute Homemade Hummus and there will be all sorts of plate licking going on (yep, sorry in advance about that – you just won’t be able to help yourself!!).

This recipe is a great free from recipe too as it is dairy free, egg free, vegetarian and vegan friendly AND easy to adapt to be gluten free by swapping the bulgur wheat for quinoa. (Another reason why it goes down so well at parties) and it’s pretty healthy too – full of goodness from the veggies, herbs, olive oil and wholegrain bulgur wheat.

How to cook perfect bulgur wheat

One little note about bulgur wheat – please, please, please ignore the packet instructions, which always tell you to cook the bulgur wheat for waaaay too long, so you end up getting a gloopy mess that sticks to the pan and doesn’t look or taste that great. My method is very simple and results in perfect bulgur wheat every time. Simply place the bulgur wheat in a pan together with double the quantity of boiling water (e.g. in this recipe 200g bulgur wheat, 400ml water), bring back to the boil, clamp on a lid and turn the heat off completely (move off the burner if you are on electric), then leave for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes all the water will have been absorbed and with a quick fluff with a fork you will have perfectly cooked bulgur wheat – easy peasy style!

With this recipe you will need the bulgur wheat to be cold, which can be easily achieved using cold water, or make the bulgur wheat in advance and allow to cool.


Easy Tabbouleh Salad (Vegan)

Want to know what my most requested recipe is? It’s this Easy Tabbouleh Salad – a deliciously simple dish to make to take along to a BBQ or pot luck dinner and the perfect accompaniment to my Oven Baked Chicken Shawarma.

Do you have a go to recipe you make when you are asked to bring a salad to a party or barbecue? This is mine. (Actually I have two – the other is my Tuna Rice Salad.) And it is one of those recipes where, whenever I make it, I am constantly asked for the recipe. In fact, it was recipes like this one that became the catalyst for starting this blog (No more writing recipes down – I can just point people in the direction of my blog), so quite how this salad has only just made it to the blog, I’m not quite sure!

Tabbouleh is a lovely Middle Eastern vegetarian salad dish, usually comprised of bulgur wheat (or sometimes couscous), tomatoes, onions and herbs.

I have made this Easy Tabbouleh Salad many times with both couscous and bulgur wheat and I am utterly convinced that the bulgur wheat version is far nicer, in fact I really do think bulgur wheat is far nicer than couscous full stop and usually have it instead of couscous with tagines and other Middle Eastern dishes. If you can’t tolerate gluten, you can easily adapt this by using the same quantity of quinoa instead (or check out my gluten free Pomegranate and Quinoa Tabbouleh).
