Gluten-free Friday: Classic Israeli Salad

Does it get any fresher than this classic Israeli salad? We don't think so! This is a traditional breakfast dish, but it's great for any meal. Tossed with lots and lots of parsley, you'll also love the combination of flavors when you add tomato, bell pepper and cucumber.

The dressing is simple, but you could add a few other ingredients to the mix: olives, feta cheese, a side of hummus and any other favorite veggies. Not only fresh in taste, this salad is bright and beautiful!

Note: Gluten can be found in many different foods and products, from ketchup to soy sauce to candy and seasonings. While tries to ensure these recipes are gluten-free, carefully read the ingredient labels of all food and food products you use for these recipes to ensure they are also gluten-free.

Wow this looks so good. I love making healthy salads that last in the fridge for a few days. I normally only add cucumbers, tomatoes, and onions. I'm excited to try this out - looks delicious!
