    UmmBinat's Note:

    "Salata is always light and crunchy, making it a perfect counterpoint to Afghan cuisine’s heavier dishes. Some Afghan cooks consider it a point of pride when the diced vegetables are small and uniform in size. The result reminds a little of a colorful bowl of confetti. For those in Afghanistan who can afford fresh vegetables, salata is a staple on the Afghan table. If you can’t get your hands on any decent tomatoes, hang onto the recipe until you can."

      This recipe will only be as successful as the quality ingredients used. Colorful and delicious salad that included a variety of heirloom tomatoes. Goes with so many different main dishes. Will make again soon before the heirloom tomatoes are merely a distant memory. Reviewed for Ramadan Tag.

      Cannot go wrong with the cilantro! Very similar to the Persian Shirazi salad.

      I love this easy salad! 99% of the time the only dressing that I use on any salad is lemon juice and a light sprinkle of salt so I knew at once that this was for me :D. It's lovely freshness was marvelous along side baked pickerel for a quick and healthy dinner last night. This will be made many times over.
