When our family visited Israel for a bar-mitzvah recently, Kady had catered a delicious Shabbat sebet. (Did we mention that she also caters parties in Jerusalem???) We all raved over her quinoa salad . Something about the combo of pistachio nuts, lemon, and pomegrante seeds kept us eating until the whole taboule was wiped out!!! Thanks for sharing the recipe- Kady!
