An inseparable part of mezze, this exclusive broken wheat salad is flavoured with sesame seeds. A landmark dish for the lebanese cuisine, which combines most of its favorites like parsley, mint, olive oil and lemon juice. You can add a few citrus fruit pieces to create a fruity variation.

Love the taste of broken wheat tossed in with tomatoes and spring onions. Parsley gives it that added lovely taste. Very healthy and my daughters love it too.
