Israeli Salad {low-carb, vegan option, grain-free} | Lexi's Clean Kitchen

This one-bowl Israeli Salad is the perfect refreshing Spring and Summer side-dish! I like to make a big bowl of it and keep it in the fridge all week long! The flavors from the lemon, tomatoes, onion, and herbs go so nicely with almost anything!

I discovered the delicious Israeli salad a number of years back on a trip to Israel and I have loved it ever since. I often forget about this simple salad, and go a long time without making it. This summer I am teaching art classes at the Jewish Community Center and have rediscovered my love for it, as they often have it in the Cafe. Now that your tomatoes are ripening, get ready to make this delicious salad all season long! Low-carb, vegan-friendly option, and so so simple to toss together!

  1. Is the nutrition facts listed for the Israel salad for the entire bowl or per serving? I see that it makes 4 servings.

  2. I do not see how many servings this makes listed, but I did make it.
    My amount of cucumbers was two large. The amount of total salad is
    a large size salad bowl. I will make it for pot luck as it is too much for
    just my DH and I.
