Want something different for breakfast?  Try this salad on for size 😉

Serves 6 to 8

Ingredients (Lemon-Sumac Vinaigrette)

  • 1 cup olive oil
  • juice and zest of 2 to 4 lemons
  • 2 tablespoons sumac, plus more for garnish
  • lots of sea salt

Ingredients (Salad)

  • 2 cups cucumbers, sliced
  • 1 bunch shallots, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups torn parsley
  • ½ cup pitted kalamata olives
  • ½ cup roasted tomatoes
  • ½ cup cherry tomatoes
  • 1 cup fetta cheese


1. Make your vinaigrette by combining all of the ingredients in a jar and shaking it like you mean it. Give it a taste. It should be super lemony with a nice creamy balance from the oil. Adjust per your taste with more lemon juice/olive oil.

2. Place the cucumbers, shallots, parsley, and olives in a mixing bowl, toss with a healthy amount of dressing, and mix well with your hands. Season with sea salt.

3. To serve, plate the salad on a platter. Stud the salad with the roasted and fresh tomatoes and hunks of fetta cheese. Drizzle more dressing on top, scatter with sumac and sea salt, and serve.
