Ladies, I'd love to have one huge list of sephardic appetizer salads that I can glance at when I'm trying to decide what to make for Shabbat.
I have my 6-7 standard ones that my family makes, but I know I must be missing tons more. I just want ideas. You don't have to post a whole recipe, just a general description and I'll figure it out. I don't care what country...we all have something good to offer!! My recipes are Tunisian, although undoubtedly popular in other countries, too. I'll start. PLEASE add yours, too!

*Cooked tomato/pepper salad
*Fennel and vinaigrette salad
*Raw artichoke, turnip and harissa salad
*Cooked eggplant salad
*Roasted pepper salad
*Carrot, cumin and harissa salad
*Cooked zucchini salad (harissa and vinegar)

Ok, add yours!! THanks!

Thank you mummiedearest! Very Happy I would not have been so bold as to make such a huge request! But yes, all of them would be nice! When you have time, of course!

Oh dear...I was afraid of that...

Fennel salad: Slice up fennel into thin spears. Drizzle with olive oil, white vinegar, salt and pepper. Toss and serve.

Cooked zucchini salad: Sautee 3-4 zucchinis (chopped into 1 inch cubes), caraway seeds, and 2 onions (sliced) in olive oil until mostly soft (do not cover, as you don't want too much liquid). Once cooked, stir in garlic powder, salt, harissa and some white vinegar to taste. Serve cold.

Cooked tomato/pepper salad: Sautee LOTS of chopped tomatoes, garlic cloves, and red/green peppers (pieces should be large) on medium fire with a good amount of oil (not tons, but not just a splash either) until juices start running from the veggies and the juices are boiling. Lower flame to LOW and allow to simmer for SEVERAL HOURS until the veggies are seriously cooked down (cook down about 70%). Cool and serve....will keep for 1 week. (when I start this recipe, I usually have a medium-large soup pot full of tomatoes/peppers and it reduces to about 2-3 cups of salad).

That's a start!

Here's the thing with Sephardic cooking...You'll find a lot of us learned recipes from our mothers, grandmothers and great grandmothers, so many of us don't use measurements. We just go "a vue de l'oeil", as they say! (by the eye)
