this reminds me of the green beans my israeli cousin makes with lots of sumac and garlic, but a fresh, summery version, which sounds great right about now. lately i’ve been loving cabbage slaws with lots of cilantro, green mango and fish sauce, there’s something about them that goes perfectly with muggy weather.
This salad sounds just perfect, and I love the idea of using ricotta salata in it. I made a similar salad recently but cooked the radishes with the sugar snap peas, and I wished I had left them raw. I will be trying this soon!
I am SO happy that you posted this today! Wouldn’t you know that at home I have sugar snap peas and a few radishes that must be consumed! I don’t have sumac, but I do have za’tar; don’t have ricotta, but do have goat cheese. i think these substitutions will work beautifully. I wouldn’t have thought to combine them all together.
Just wanted you to know that someone loves your blog in Colombia! (mmm…that would be me). I love the way it is organized, it is so easy to navigate through it!!
This recipe looks amazing, I would like to ask you if you can think of any replacement for Sumac, I dont know what it tastes like and we don´t have it here.
Hi Mari- that is fantastic! I am so glad you are enjoying the blog, and am very proud to have a reader in Columbia. As for the recipe, you can just leave the sumac out. It has a tart flavor but an extra squeeze of lemon juice will easily compensate. Maybe it won’t look as pretty, but it will still be delicious!
Thanks so much for introducing yourself.
Literally the salad I’ve been subconciously craving. Just seeing the picture of it made me realise, that’s it! Exactly what I feel like having for dinner tonight with some fresh bread. I hope I can get my hands on some sugar snap peas though.
Made this for a b-day party yesterday – substituted kohlrabi from CSA for radishes, went with the ricotta salata idea, and shelled about half the peas before parboiling. Delicious and fresh and lovely! The sumac really adds something, both flavor- and aesthetic-wise. Thanks!
I found this recipe on Pinterest and it looks so fresh and wonderful, I had to pin it! I think I’ll make it to take along when I visit my parents this week. A summmery, fresh salad sounds perfect for the unseasonably warm weather we’ve been having in Washington for the past few days!
