I fell in love with this salad from one of our local Lebanese shops and had tried for years to find the recipe. I finally found it on another site and would like to share it with you. The blending of juices from fresh garden vegetables makes this salad one of a kind. Simple to prepare it is one of our favorites. My husband even likes it and he's a meat, potato and gravy man!

A delicious salad with a lovely crunch. It reminds me of a salad that Arab friends used to make -- especially the use of equal amounts of oil and lemon juice. It was a refreshing and balancing addition to a meal of Indian curries. Made and thoroughly enjoyed for Pick a Chef.

This is a wonderful salad!! It was amazing the way in which the flavors of the ingredients combined to make such a delicious salad. I served it with grilled lamb, pita and Hummus (Hummus, Hommos, Humus). We will make this again! Thanks for a healthy recipe that tastes so very good!! acerast
