The Lebanese sure have a way with salads…brighten your menus with these favorite Lebanese Summer Salads using all kinds of fresh herbs and vegetables (and fruit!). Try everything from Tabbouleh Salad to no-mayo Lebanese Cole Slaw. And, make them all even better with excellent Pomegranate Molasses, Mint Salts and other Lebanese spices, and Extra-Virgin Olive Oil.
When summer is in full swing, we go all-in on salad every single day. Lebanese salads are EVERYTHING! These recipes use produce and herbs to their fullest, always with light, lemony vinaigrettes that bring big flavor without all of the heavy fats.
Try Lebanese summer salads with grilled meats and vegetables or on their own. Try adding chickpeas or lentils for additional protein and fiber in virtually any of these salads.
Take a Lebanese summer salad to your next cookout. They hold so well because of the light vinaigrettes. Pro tip: make your vinaigrette in a jar and bring it alongside to dress the salad just before serving.
Tabouli Salad: A Lebanese Tabbouleh Recipe
Tabbouleh is delicious on its own, eaten with thin pita bread so you can dip the bread in the juices on your plate or the salad bowl…. It is a perfect accompaniment to grilled meats, especially shish kebab, lamb chops or steaks.
Lebanese Coleslaw, Malfouf Salad
No mayo in sight! This is a seriously delicious Lebanese slaw, one we can’t get enough of for its flavor, crunch, and super-duper healthy qualities! Be sure to cut your own cabbage for this one; pre-cut slaw is just too thin and soft for the crunch we’re after here.
Lebanese Fattoush Salad
Fattoush is at its finest in summer! Once you start making Lebanese Fattoush Salad, it will be ago-to favorite salad! My Fattoush recipe is an authentic Lebanese salad made with fresh vegetables, an addictive tangy Fattoush dressing, and pita chips.
Chickpea and Feta Picnic Salad
This is a perfect warm weather picnic salad, so good with grilled meats and also on its own as a healthy lunch. Your line-up of vegetables can include anything you like. A mix of colors and a lot of crunch is the goal.
Lebanese-style Panzanella Salad
Pita chips replace the traditional Italian-style croutons in this tomato salad. They soak up the precious juice we wouldn’t even consider leaving behind. The mix of lemon with rice vinegar gives the sweet tomatoes the perfect pop of tartness we love so much.
Lebanese Potato Salad with Lemon and Mint
Nothing creamy about it and bursting with flavor. We love this potato salad, and so do you!
Grilled Corn Salad with Mint and Feta Recipe
We are a fresh summer corn people! This is one of the great things we do with it when we’re not just slathering a barely steamed ear with butter. Add some black beans to ramp up the protein factor.
Quinoa Tabbouleh Recipe
This one is gluten free! The quintessential Lebanese salad is made with chopped herbs, parsley and mint, studded with onion, tomato and in place of bulgur wheat, quinoa.
