I have the Jerusalam cookbook (highly recommend it), and made this salad from the cookbook. It's a VERY good salad, I will also be making it again. Opening the dates to pit them, we discovered that they can sometimes have black mold inside. This was a good lesson for us to always open them to check! Only one had it, but I wouldn't want to be the one that ate it. I also let the date/vinegar/onion mixture longer than called for, and it was just fine. The sumac-coated pita chips are the highlight of this salad, but all the flavors work wonderfully together. I am no big fan of raw spinach salads, but I'd eat this one just about any day.

Made as written except for adding in some baby arugula with the baby spinach. Love all the
different flavors: peppery, sour, sweet, etc. Reviewed for NA*ME Explores OMAN. Great salad! (PS Tested with apple cider vinegar.)
