Sorrel Salad Recipe – Ավելուկով Աղցան

Sorrel Salad Recipe

Another quick and healthy dish from Armenian cuisine: sorrel salad (Ավելուկով Աղցան) with bulgur, walnuts and pomegranate seeds.

I love my traditional cuisine for its simplicity and rich taste. This sorrel salad comes to prove that. Only a few ingredients gather and make one healthy vegan dish, that’s very delicious when served warm or cold. Sorrel or Aveluk, as we call it in Armenian, is a unique green. We pickup the greed in summertime, braid into long strands, dry under sun and when the comfort food season is on, we make soups and salads.
