The perfect salad to enjoy with spiced roast chicken for a lazy healthy evening meal. I just love the the slightly sour & fruity flavour addition of the sumac alongside tasty pearls of pomegranate with these crunchy leaves. The tzatziki really brings this salad to life with its creamy fresh texture & flavour.
