Thanks for joining Sarah and me for Meatless Monday! I am loving how great all of the produce is right now. Just makes me want to eat salad all day long. Last weekend for Mother’s Day, I was running around and needed to whip up something quickly for our family get together. I took a bunch of my favorite veggies along with hummus, feta and tabouleh and quickly created this 7 layer Mediterranean Salad. It was amazing-seriously so good.
I took many of my favorite Mediterranean salad components: lettuce, tomato, hummus, chick peas, tabouleh, feta and cucumber and layered them into a trifle bowl to create this crunchy, yummy delicious meal. It’s a salad and a dip all in one! Normally, I like to make my own tabouleh and hummus but I was in a time crunch and used store bought. (What kind of foodie am I?)
I like to prep all my ingredients in advance so I am ready to go. Honestly, this 7 layer Mediterranean salad took less than 15 minutes to pull together and it looked absolutely fabulous and tasted incredible. I spiralized the cucumbers on top but if you are in a rush just dice them up. This could easily be made vegan by leaving out the feta cheese. Hummus, feta, tabouleh and all the yummy veggies paired so well together. I served it with a little Tzatziki on the side and a simple vinegarette and it was perfect.
7 Layer Mediterranean Salad
- 6 cups of chopped Romaine or Spinach
- 2 Cups of Tabouleh
- 1 15 oz can of chick peas (rinsed & drained)
- 2 tomatoes sliced
- 16 oz of hummus
- 1 1/2 C feta cheese
- 2 cucumbers (sliced thinly or spiralized)
- optional topping: Tzatziki or vinegarette
- In a glass bowl layer the following:
- chick peas
- optional toppings: olives, Tzatziki, vinegarette
- Chill or serve immediately
I made this in a large glass trifle bowl, however, I also think it would be fantastic on a smaller scale and even in some mason jars. Using the glass bowl allows you to really appreciate all the layers and makes is very visually appealing for parties.
Hope you all enjoy! I promise you won’t be disappointed.
