Bethlehem Salad

This recipe comes from Armenia, a land that is half real and half mythical. The Bible indicates it like the Garden of Eden. It was also in the confluence of the rivers Tigris and Euphrates, on the feet of Mount Ararat, where Noah anchored his coffer and planted the first grapevine. The Bethlehem salad is a typical plate of the region and, with their vegetables, the olive oil and the dry fruits, evoke “the 1000 + 1 nights” flavours.
