The Severnshed was a longstanding restaurant in a boathouse on Bristol harbourside. It survived at least 20 years but sadly i never got round to eating there before it closed. They specialised in middle eastern food including this traditional Syrian dish which was later adopted by the Jewish community in Damascus. This updated version is from one of their head chefs, Raviv Hadad, and I found it in Sophie Grigson’s ” Sunshine Food”, one of my go to books in 2000 when it was first published. It can be served as a starter or a vegetarian main course.

A recipe for late spring/ early summer from Waitrose. I could happily eat Jersey Royal potatoes daily when they are in season, but my waistline will not allow it. If you like, you could add cooked prawns, chicken or crispy bacon to this salad too.
A wonderful combination of flavours make this salad from ” Taste” by Sybil Kapoor a winner.
