Muslim Hands

Throughout Ramadan, we'll be providing you with a series of recipes to help you make the most of iftar and suhur. Each recipe includes Sunnah ingredients and comes with an easy to print downloadable recipe card to help you as you go in the kitchen.

This week's recipe comes all the way from Gaza from our country Manager Saed. Saed recommends a refreshing Palestinian salad as part of a light healthy iftar. This simple yet delicious salad uses fresh, light ingredients including parsley, an excellent source of Vitamins C, K and A, iron and folate which boosts your immune system and helps to detox your body. Quick and easy to make, this salad is a perfect refreshing addition to your iftar!

Serves: 2

Bunch of fresh parsley

2. For the garnish, finely chop the parsley – you'll need ½ a cup.
3. Next, mix the salad - place the cucumber, tomato and parsley into a bowl and add the salt, pepper and olive oil. Mix well.
4. To finish and give full flavour to the salad, add your lemon juice and give the salad one final mix. Serve and enjoy!
