Balela Salad (Bah-lay-la salad) is Middle Eastern-style salad. This hearty refreshing salad is bursting with zesty flavor. It is light healthy, vegan and gluten free. I love it best into Whole Wheat Pita Bread with Tzatziki Dip and Hummus for delicious and complete meal.
Balela Salad tastes flavorful from mint and parsley. If you don’t find parsley in your area, you can use cilantro. You can use Sumac which bumps up zesty flavor. But I couldn’t find it and skip that part. Its good without too! you can also use black kidney beans.
You can keep for days in the fridge and becomes your go-to during busy work weeks. It is not just flavorful but its full of nutrients.
