Chopped Israeli Salad & Sauteed Mushrooms with Garlic

Recipe by Makely Phillips

Serves: 4

Total Time: 20-25 minutes

With simple and fresh flavors reminiscent of home, Israeli salad is a common part of Israeli meals. No wrong way to enjoy it, in this recipe, I have served it over a bed of quinoa but you can also serve it on its own. Often served next to Israeli salad, the mushrooms and garlic add tremendous aromas and flavors to your favorite homemade or store-bought hummus. A great source of vitamins for the average busy college student, this recipe is ideal for storing in the fridge and eating over a few days time. My personal favorite is to enjoy the mushrooms and hummus with pita chips or raw veggies as a side dish or filling study snack.

  • 2 cups diced cucumber

  1. Dice vegetables finely. The finer the dice, the more the lemon juice and salt can infuse into the salad, adding flavor and complexity to the dish.
