Afghan Paneer Salad with Pomegranate Vinaigrette

Regular price $13.95 special

Cool down from the summer heat with this refreshing salad!

Chef Zainab's Afghan Paneer Salad is full of crisp and vibrant flavors. She starts by making homemade paneer, a type of soft-cheese with origins in the Indian subcontinent. Chef Zainab brings whole milk to a gentle boil, then adds lemon juice, and stirs until the milk curdles. Once curdled, she strains it through cheesecloth and rinses the cheese to get rid of any lemon flavor. After straining, Chef Zainab presses the paneer to get a perfectly-shaped block of cheese. Chef Zainab then cuts the panner into bite-sized cubes. The base of this salad consists of fresh chopped romaine lettuce, and also features cherry tomatoes, red onions, roasted chickpeas, and cucumbers. The tomatoes and onions add brightness, while the cucumbers add a refreshing bite. The salad is served with Chef Zainab's Pomegranate Vinaigrette, which features pomegranate and honey for sweetness, and dijon mustard and lemon for a zest kick. The sharpness and sweetness of the vinaigrette beautifully harmonizes with the refreshing veggies, altogether creating the perfect dish to enjoy on a warm summer day.
