2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Prep the meatballs

  • Peel and thinly slice the onion. Measure ½ cup [1 cup] sliced onion and finely chop for the meatballs. Set aside the remaining sliced onion for the salad.
  • Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp].
  • Cut a small corner from the ground meat packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel. 

In a medium bowl, combine the ground meat, finely chopped onion, garlic, and kefta spice blend. Season generously with salt and pepper and mix until just combined. Using wet hands, form the mixture into 1-inch meatballs.


Cook the meatballs

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the meatballs and cook, turning occasionally, until browned and cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Meanwhile, prepare the salad.


Make the salad

  • Remove any stems from the grapes. Cut the grapes in half. Set aside for serving.

In a large bowl, stir together the lemon dressing and pumpkin seed dukkah. Add the spinach and remaining sliced onion, season with salt and pepper, and toss to coat.


Transfer the salad to individual plates, top with the grapes and meatballs, and serve.
