The Sabich Salad (or sandwich, depending on how you serve it) is one of my favorites. And there’s lots of reasons why.

This recipe is from my new book, Secrets of Skinny Cooking, written with Shani Taub C.N. C.D.C. and styled and photographed by Esti Photography. It’s available now on Amazon and at your local Judaica store!

This recipe is one of my favorites because it’s unexpected and you can enjoy it a couple of different ways, in a salad or as a sandwich (that’s why it’s in the “Friendly Carbs” chapter).

The Sabich Salad (or sandwich, depending on how you serve it) is one of my favorites. And there’s lots of reasons why.Here’s the wrap version. Simply omit the potato and pile up all the ingredients inside your sandwich instead.

Make a big batch of the tahini-style dressing! If you love techinah, it’s a great low-cal alternative. Use it as a dip, or over fish, or on any salad where you want some Middle Eastern flavor.

Double the recipe and this is it’s a huge, gorgeous, super-filling salad that’s worthy for company. When I’m entertaining, I use pretty mini potatoes instead of the larger Yukon Golds. Just boil them under fork tender and toss them in the salad. This is a great option if you want a different, exciting salad that isn’t lettuce based.
