This recipe reminds me of warm summertime BBQs’ in my parent’s garden in Toronto, where the whole family would gather together for a Levantine BBQ feast. My mother uses the fresh mint and parsley that she grows in her garden for this recipe and I remember picking them out for her, while the potatoes boiled.

So delicious, this classic Levantine potato salad uses boiled potatoes, and tosses them with a simple dressing of extra-virgin olive oil, garlic, chili, fresh lemon juice, mixed together with some green onions, fresh mint, flat-leaf, it’s that simple and easy.

Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, Tanya knew that Palestine was her symbolic homeland. Always curious about her identity and connecting with her roots, she was eager to strengthen her ties to the Levant and traveled the region, desperate to learn more. It wasn’t until her first trip to Palestine that she became spiritually and emotionally connected. She studied Political Science and Sociology at the University of Toronto. She then moved to the UAE, supporting numerous NGOs related to children’s welfare in the region. When she had her own family, she created the My Olive Roots platform in the hopes that her children and the Arabs diaspora would have a place to connect, learn and preserve their roots. Tanya enjoys discovering humanist stories and exploring the connection of food and art with culture.
