I was tempted to call this Mediterranean Salad, since it does indeed employ Mediterranean ingredients and style, but this title has already been claimed by another fantastic salad on the blog. Hence the uncreative nomenclature of Capsicum, Tomato, Haloomi Salad.

Sujuk is a spicy meat mixture most commonly shaped into a sort of big sausage and hung to dry. It is very popular in Turkey and Armenia, and is very similar to the Iraqi basturma. This recipe does not require weeks of drying, just an overnight stint in the refrigerator.

This salad is loaded with goodness, it really is enough to be a lunch on its own,
Lettuce and cherry tomatoes form the base, then the heavy weights come in: crispy beef or turkey bacon, boiled eggs, crispy-chewey croutons, anchovies, and the star of the show: crispy chicken.

Life and circumstances sometimes get in the way of routine and it's been a short while since I last participated in the MENA Cooking Club. Prior contributions have been Algeria, Bahrain, Djiboui, Egypt, Iraq, and Jordan. This time it's Malta's turn.

It all started with the simple burger. All you need for a great burger patty is plain, good quality minced beef, salt, and pepper. No fillers like breadcrumbs or what-have-you. Since then, I have relished home-made burgers. That led to the roquefort burger, and now the chilli-cheese burger. The options are endless, really.

Pavlova is the Australian giveaway that they are an extension of the United Kingdom.
By that, I am referring to the British dessert, Eton Mess. Eton mess is basically broken meringue and sliced fruit folded in whipped cream. Pavlova is essentially a giant meringue cookie, topped with whipped cream and sliced fruit. Same roots, different leafs.

This is an easy, fast, and pantry-staple dish loved by all. Barring seasoning, it is made of four ingredients: chicken, honey, mustard, and just a touch of vinegar. I used chicken thighs as they retain their moisture much better than chicken breasts.
