    Leah's Kitchen's Note:

    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 a few years back and have been making it ever since.

      Wonderful salad! I omitted the salt (personal preference) and used all the garnishes, including the feta. We loved the spiciness of the jalapenos and and cayenne. Thanks for sharing! ZWT6

      Almost 4 1/2 stars. I used shallot for the onion and omitted the jalapeño as we don't like really spicy. I used less cayenne out of preference and organic grape tomatoes. We found this quite garlic/oniony. Made for NA*ME Tag.

      Love, love, love it!. Lots of flavor, easy and can be made ahead to allow a marinade time. This is a great side but in the warmer months will be a welcome lighter meal in it's self. I didn't and wouldn't change a thing (with the exception of remembering to add the cayenne and feta *blush*).
