Enjoy this flavorful salad with falafel, barbecued meat, fried fish or spoon it into a pita pocket. The recipe can be found in The Arabian Nights Cookbook: From Lamb Kebabs to Baba Ghanouj, Delicious Homestyle Arabian cooking. I found the recipe in the Toronto Star.

This wonderful salad is a nice change from other salad recipes. I made it exactly as written and we enjoyed it alongside Marvelous Middle-Eastern Marinated Yogurt Lemon Chicken. It has the perfect combination of spices and the tahini provides a nice flavor. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe. Made for PRMR.

I loved this recipe. The only problem for me was that it didn't keep well. The juices from the tomatoes and cucumber diluted the dressing too much. So now I make the dressing and keep it separate adding just prior to eating. Just the same as a lettuce salad. Delicious though and a nice change from lettuce salad.

A nice way to eat the fresh tomatoes and cucumbers from my friend's garden! I enjoyed the tahini flavor. I did scale this down for 1, thanks!
