Chef's Notes

Sumac is a ground spice, reddish in color, that has a bright, tangy flavor. I've found it in a Middle Eastern market and online; Garlic puree can be substituted for the minced garlic.


  1. I have made this twice now. I keep adding vegetables to it and it just gets better. I enjoy it more the longer it sits - 3-4 hrs
  2. 12.16.15 Love the bright flavor that the fresh lemon juice brings to this salad. This family loves bean salads and we enjoyed this recipe.
