Basterma Green Salad

This salad will definitely go on your favorites list if you are a basterma fan. I served it once at a family gathering, and it has been going viral ever since.


  • 1/8 kg basterma - بسطرمة
  • 1 tablespoon butter - زبدة
  • 1 large lettuce - خس
  • 2 bunch arugula (baladi) - جرجير
  • 3 medium tomatoes - طماطم
  • 2 tablespoon pine nuts (optional) - صنوبر
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar - الخل البلسمي
  • 1/2 cup olive oil - زيت زيتون
  • 2 medium garlic cloves - فصوص ثوم
  • 2 teaspoon Dijon mustard - مسطردة ديجون
  • 1 teaspoon honey - عسل
  • 1 pinch black pepper - فلفل أسود

Step by step

  1. In a pan, melt the butter and lightly fry the basterma for a minute or two. Take it out on kitchen tissue and set aside.
  2. In a bowl, mix your greens and add the sliced tomatoes and cheese and set aside.
  3. To toast the pine nuts, shake them in a dry pan over medium heat until they start turning golden. Set aside.
  4. In a jar, mix the dressing ingredients and use a garlic crusher to mince the garlic into the dressing. Shake well.
  5. Assemble your salad right before serving. Dress your greens with some of the dressing, then add the basterma and pine nuts on top and finally pour the rest of the dressing over the salad.
