Turkish Shepherd's Salad |

Turkish Shepherd’s Salad, or Çoban Salatası, is, perhaps, the most frequently served salad on a Turkish table. In our family it is a must when we have grilled meats, rice and bulgur pilafs, stews, and myriad of other dishes. It is super good on its own too, as a light meal.

The salad is made with a crunchy and colorful concoction of finely chopped  fresh vegetables, jazzed up with aromatic herbs – the classic one being parsley, with dill and mint as additional options.

The dressing is nothing more than a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil and a splash of freshly squeezed lemon juice. Turkish Shepherd’s Salad is a nutrition bomb.
