Recipe: Israeli-Style Salad

I’ve got a lot of Israeli blood in me—my mom is Israeli and I married a man from Tel Aviv. Growing up, we always had an Israeli-style chopped salad on the table. Today as a mom of three kids, you can still find this colorful and healthy salad on my table at most meals.It’s also my go-to salad to serve to my guests who always ask me for the recipe.
