the real thing

April 13, 2014 • Nancy Wolfson-Moche

What makes this a real Israeli salad? For starters, it was made and eaten in Israel. The colorful, seasonal vegetables – cucumbers, tomatoes, radishes, peppers, sprouts, beets and onion — are chopped into tiny pieces. But there is more. This signature native dish reflects Israeli culture: it is a mosaic of tiny parts that make up a whole. It is dynamic and crunchy and flavorful, just like this land where people of all colors come together from all corners of the world.
