Falafel Salad

Ingredients:

  • 1 serving pre-made falafel (Trader Joe’s has them in the freezer section)
  • 1/2 cucumber, cubed
  • 1/2 cup tomatoes
  • Mixed greens, butter lettuce, romaine or spinach (1 cup per serving)
  • 2 tablespoons diced red onion
  • Feta cheese
  • Fresh parsley
  • (adding kalamata olives and/or artichoke hearts is also delicious in this salad)

Dressing ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup good quality extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar (you can also use balsamic vinegar for a balsamic vinaigrette, or champagne vinegar, or apple cider vinegar)
  • 1 tablespoon raw honey or pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Warm the falafel up according to the package directions.
  2. Add all of the salad dressing ingredients to a bowl or shaker and whisk or shake it up. We have this OXO Salad Shaker is awesome.
  3. In a salad bowl, add the lettuce, cucumber, tomatoes and red onion. Top with the falafel, then a sprinkle of feta cheese and fresh parsley.
  4. Then add salad dressing and enjoy!
