Green fresh wild Thyme is a Lebanese salad born at the times of the Mezzeh offerings.
Green Thyme is now available in most of the Middle East and it is served as a salad.
The Green Fresh Wild Thyme in Lebanon was prepared with white Onion slivers - Lemon Juice - EVOO - S&P.
Variations are with the addition of Rocket leaves (Aragula) and sometimes Green Olives.
My variation is to add Purslane which again is a typical Levant herb.
It goes like this:
- Green fresh wild Thyme
- Green Onions
- Lemon Juice (a lot)
- EVOO with macerated Chilis
You eat it by scooping it with Arabic flat bread.
I did add Green Olives later!
And yes, pearls of sweat should form between the eyebrows when you smell the salad bouquet.....
