This fresh and crunchy Lebanese Slaw is incredibly addicting. It’s full of flavorful herbs- mint, parsley, and dill simply dressed with lemon and olive oil. It’s delicious served with grilled chicken shawarma, or falafels, or Zaatar Meatballs.

The first time I had this flavorful Middle Eastern Slaw was at my favorite Lebanese restaurant in Southern California where I grew up. It’s called Salatat Malfouf and though it has very simple ingredients, the combination is spectacular. It’s a lovely addition to any Middle Eastern Feast.

What I love about this Lebanese Slaw is that you can add other seasonal ingredients to it. Vine-ripened cherry tomatoes, Turkish cucumbers, or radishes would all work well here. Today I’ve intentionally kept it basic.

chopping the cabbage

 Lebanese Slaw is traditionally made with mint. I’ve had versions with dried mint, and though I prefer fresh, the dried mint actually works. Here we’re not only using fresh mint, but adding fresh parsley and dill as well.

A trifecta of flavor!

Add scallions or finely chopped onion.

Then dress with lemon juice, olive oil and a finely minced garlic clove.

I love adding a little Zaatar spice, but this is optional.
