Assuming that this is for casual ordering of food at an eatery...


Explanation:
Common expressions vary, but I typically use expressions that basically say, “salad, please”:

SALATA, LAU SAMAHT (SAMAHTI, if addressing a female).
SALATA, MIN FADHLAK (FADHLIK, if addressing a female.

Please note that these expressions are suitable for casual conversation, not for formal or written statements. Also be forewarned that there are bewildering regional variations.

I am also assuming you don’t need it written out in Arabic script, right?
