Avocado Salad

Judging by its popularity, you would think that the avocado has been grown in Israel for many years. In fact, until recently, they were not grown in Israel at all. Today, the avocado is an Israeli favorite and avocado fields dot the countryside.

Carrot Salad

Carrot salad is easy to make and refreshing. When Israelis abroad long for their homeland, they recall the incomparable tastes of Israel's fruits and vegetables.

Green Pepper Salad

This is a Romanian dish which is also featured in Middle Eastern menus. Israeli green peppers are known for their sweetness.

Shakshouka (Egg in Tomato Sauce)

A Sephardi favorite. No Middle Eastern restaurant menu is complete without it, though Hungarians also delight in this dish with the addition of lots of paprika. Leshakshek means "to shake" in Hebrew. Every cook from North Africa has his or her own personal version of this egg and tomato dish.

Zucchini Pritti

Zucchini was mentioned in the Bible (Book of Leviticus), and until this day has remained part of the fare in Israel and neighboring lands.
