Within the various and palatable traditional Saudi dishes, is Saleeg. This dish is one that no one can resist as it is high in simple ingredients yet deeply valued by its taste in local households. Saleeg is usually cooked using rice, buttermilk, olive oil, and different spices including cardamom pods, salt, pepper, cinnamon, bay leaf, chicken, beef, or lamb.
Originating from the region of the Hijaz, this national dish is specifically known in Taif considering the year-round cold weathers.
