READY IN: 2hrs 50mins
Recipe by Galley Wench

QETH .... a quick, easy, tasty and healthy middle eastern dish. NOTE: I agree with reviewers that this salad needs to be kicked-up-a notch, so I've made some revisions as of 7/1/09.

I have made this recipe so many times I can't even count. It is so simple, delicious, refreshing, and SO healthy! I usually throw in ingredients that I have on hand, but the original recipe is my absolute favorite. Cilantro, red onions, cumin, corn, black beans.... mmm it is so tasty! Thank you for sharing!
