Alice Zaslavsky: Recipes (Israeli Salad)

by Alice Zaslavsky (A.K.A Alice in Frames)

Hello and welcome! I’m Alice Zaslavsky (A.K.A Alice in Frames), author of Alice's Food A-Z, host of Kitchen Whiz and general Jewish food go-to girl, and I’m here to share some of my favourite kid-friendly recipes just in time for The Shabbos Project 2015.

In the kitchen, I have two rules: Kids can do anything except work with things that are hot or sharp. Always make sure there is an adult supervising the little ones.

Today we’re going to make a vibrant Israeli Salad with the help of my two co-hosts, Abbey and Amailia

If you think about it, an Israeli salad is all about keeping things really small, so for this kid-friendly Israeli salad, we’ll use baby cucumbers and cherry tomatoes.



Here’s what you’ll need to make your own Kiddie Israeli Salad:

  • Baby cucumbers
  • 6-10 Cherry tomatoes
  • Olive oil
  • Salt flakes


Here’s how to make it:

  1. Carefully slice the cucumbers into round slices.
  2. Placing the cherry tomatoes with the flat side down, slice them in half.
  3. Add them together in a mixing bowl.
  4. Drizzle with olive oil, and add the salt flakes to season the salad.
  5. Give them a shake to mix it, and enjoy!

And that’s it! A delicious, fresh Israeli Salad!

Hi! I’m Alice. And I love making food fun. It’s an excuse to bring people together, really. A chance to share knowledge and tell tales; to pass ideas along a kitchen bench or a dining room table. It’s about transferring those ideas and passions on to the next generation; about cultivating curiosity. Cooking is really just my way of saying ‘Hi, let’s be friends!’

Since competing in Masterchef Australia in 2012, I’ve had the opportunity to take my meals and musings to a massive international audience. As a result, I’ve left my life as a School Teacher behind to become a Life Teacher. I’m ready to bring my message of edible adventures and make-your-own magic to people (especially little people) across the country – and hopefully the globe – through writing, talking, cooking and above all, eating. My mission is to draw on what I’ve learnt from my travels, experiences and chance encounters around the world; to say ‘yes!’ to as many opportunities that come my way as possible; to continue learning and never stop. Some people think I’m a little nuts. And it’s true, I guess. I am a little nuts — about a lot of things. Like reading books and playing with words and laughing often; and, above all, about living life with gusto. I’m also pretty nuts about food, believe it or not. Which, I suppose, is probably why you’re here. But a meal isn’t simply a meal, you see; it’s just the beginning. It’s my firm belief that being passionate and interested and slightly obsessed is the secret to living a joyful, fulfilled and interesting life. Which is why I want everyone else to be a little nuts, too.
