Childhood Memories Salad

A salad that can fill you with a lifetime's worth of memories...and delicious Middle Eastern flavors.

Growing up in Barcelona in a Jewish/Lebanese household, we were lucky to be exposed to an amazing fusion of cuisines that sparked our interest in food at a very young age.  We had the chance to enjoy an incredible array of herbs, spices, flavors and textures that we still remember and use to this day.

Almost every ingredient, flavor and recipe we use today has a memory attached to it. And that is something we treasure immensely, now that we live in a town on the east coast, so far away from home.
