Pasta, Spinach and Duck Prosciutto Salad with Sumac Salad Dressing ala Dentisi Chef

spinach pasta salad recipe duck prosciutto sumac dressing salad

Sumac, sumak or sumach  is  flowering plants in the genus Rhus  from family Anacardiaceae. Sumac grow in subtropical climates, especially in Africa. The sumac fruits (drupes) are grounded into a reddish purple powder used as a spice in Middle Eastern cuisine to add a lemony taste to salads or meat. In Arabian cuisine, it is used as a garnish for  hummus and added to rice or kebab.


Sumac: Prescius Spice !

I’ve been searching sumac all over around and end up with nothing but dissapointing. My Arab descent friend  did’t known about it, even few of  arabian ethic stores in Palembang didn’t notes that. Thanks God one of my fellow blogger friends, Tinsyam  had sumac. She sent me a couple tablespoons of sumac and i can even wait to give it a try for my salad. My first verdict of sumac is lemony and tangy  sour aftertaste, i guess sumac is not only suits for salad but also great with seafood. My next project is making sumac crusted tuna.

Spinch Sumac Salad Just Before Tossed Out

Today i make a sumac salad with a fusion of eastern and western ingredient. I use HOMEMADE DUCK PROSCIUTTO, back olives, cheese and truffle oil for western touch. To give a contrast, i used few asian ingredient like lotus root and CRISPY ENOKI MUSHROOM TEMPURA and blended it with Middle East spice Sumac. For a presentation purpose, i mix the sumac sala dressing  after i did the photo session, but i still drizzled  it with black truffle oil.

  1. I actually had to look up sumac and guess what the plant is growing on my property! I have always wondered what it was, it is hardy, fast-growing and spreads easily by seed. Now I just have to learn to use it, this dish sounds great!

  2. Beautiful salad! A feast for the eyes. Very informative post, thanks for sharing all the info about sumac.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog. Sorry I don’t write my posts in English anymore but there is a translation tool available.

  3. Beautiful and tasty pasta salad, especially with the duck prosciutto and the sumac…and the presentation as always gorgeous.
    Hope you are having a great week 🙂
