This is my take on an American-Mediterranean fusion. Well, we were also low in the protein area that night, so this was created. Considering the dish is a salad, it is still plenty filling and full of fresh flavors. The time spent making it is all in the prep work, then just simply assemble.

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Mix water and falafel mix together in a bowl; let stand for 10 minutes. Form mixture into 12 patties, about 1/2-inch thick.

  • Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Fry falafel patties, working in batches, in the hot oil until golden brown and crisp, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer cooked falafel to a paper towel-lined plate using a slotted spoon; season with salt. Cool falafel to room temperature; break into pieces.

  • Whisk sour cream, milk, cucumber, parsley, and 1/8 teaspoon salt together in a bowl until dressing is smooth and creamy; refrigerate.

  • Spread greens onto serving plates. Arrange tomatoes, avocado, bacon, eggs, feta cheese, and falafel in rows over the greens. Drizzle dressing over each salad.

Cook's Note:

Spinach or iceberg lettuce can also be used in place of mixed greens if desired.

Editor's Note:

We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.

AWESOME! I really LOVE this take on the traditional cobb salad! I made my own falafel using 'Pan-Fried Falafel' from this site and it was great. I made the falafel pretty small and cut them in 1/2 before putting on the salad so it would be easier to eat. I couldn't fit the feta in a row on the plate (it was too full lol) so I just sprinkled it over top the falafel. I really REALLY enjoyed this salad and so did my girls...I will def be making this again YUM! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

I thought this was ingenious and delicious! I don't use the mix but had some of Sean's Falafel (from this site) uncooked in my freezer. What a great recipe. Thank you Jenn T.! Please post more of your creations you kitchen goddess! Read More
