I love this salad, the ingredients and the flavors are great. It is a fresh yet flavorful salad that can be used as a side dish or main dish lunch as I usually make it. I found this recipe in The Arab Table by: May Bsisu http://www.amazon.com/Arab-Table-Recipes-Culinary-Traditions/dp/0060586141 a few years back and have been making it ever since.

How can you improve upon lemon and garlic?! I found this delicious sounding recipe from the book: http://www.amazon.com/Arabesque-Morocco-Turkey-Lebanon-ebook/dp/B001O1O7W6/ref=dp_kinw_strp_1?ie=UTF8&m=AG56TWVU5XWC2 (posted for North Africa and Middle East tag)

It is spiced ground beef/lamb baked on top of flat bread.
Recipe adapted from "Saudi Arabia Magazine" (an official publication of the Information Office of the Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia). The serving amount and time to make is my guess.
It is unknown where exactly yogurt originated though it is thought that the Arabs, Turks, or Persians are responsible. You can make your own yogurt at home with only milk and a bit of yogurt. Very easy, no yogurt maker required. I have been making it for a few years and know that anyone can make this. It makes great yogurt especially if you use whole milk; very creamy and thick. You can use nonfat milk but it is a little thin and the consistency isn't that great compared to with more fat. It is best to go with 2% or whole. I also use organic milk, I find the flavor to be more full and sweet.I found it in an Arabic cookbook. Here is a step by step tutorial I have made including photos: http://xeniahome.blogspot.com/2010/03/homemade-yogurt-middle-eastern-way.html
A tasty spiced cheese similar to cream cheese that can be used as a spread over pita, or with cucumber slices, crackers, chips or whatever you like. This is my own za'atar recipe but if you have your own you can use that instead if you like, since mine isn't all that authentic. ;) (The preparation time includes letting the yogurt drain.)
