"Lefet" is the first thing that comes to mind when you say the word "pickle" to a Lebanese. Our turnip pickle jars owe their bright color to a hidden piece or two of beetroot inside. Make sure to buy more than one jar. Once you open it, it will soon be gone.
Suggestions: Lebanese people love these with a hearty fava bean (foul) breakfast or with the famous falafel sandwich. They also go perfectly with any hearty stew, and even some sandwiches. Feryal's special treat is the turnip salad: thinly sliced turnip pickles, thinly sliced onions, toasted cumin seeds, a tiny bit of apple vinegar, and olive oil. We're sure you never had this one before.
