Turkish Salad with Pomegranate Sauce / Gavurdağı Salatası

gavurdagi

Turkish Salad with Pomegranate Sauce  or Gavurdağı Salatası is named after a mountain in Eastern Turkey. The word “gavur” means non-Muslim, kind of discriminating, so it is good for the mountain to have a new name as “nur” which means light. On the other hand the salad is stuck with the previous name. On the other hand it is so delicious nobody really cares.

This salad is more often served in kebab restaurants. It is a perfect side dish with its color and juice. Actually you can eat it as it is with a bread just out of the oven will make a perfect lunch.

The only tip is to chop all the vegetables to tiny pieces so all the spices are well combined and absorbed. You cannot keep this salad too long as the onions will become sour. Once ready chill in the fridge for a while and then serve. Enjoy.
