    Angela Sara's Note:

    This is a much loved Syrian peasant salad in which pieces of soaked toasted bread provide an unusual texture. From my well used cookbook, A New Book of Middle Eastern Food.

      This is going to become a regular on our table. It's got all the things I love in food going for it-lemon, tomatoes, herbs and good olive oil. We ate this tonight with Canarygirl's Middle Eastern Burgers, and it was a great meal. I added the garlic, but next time I plan to leave it out, as it was a bit harsh on the tongue. Thanks Angela for a terrific recipe.

      Mmmm, very authentic...tastes just like the one at my favorite little Lebanese restaurant (which I can't get to anymore since we moved far away to a place w/o middle Eastern food...waaaah....) I'd managed a decent substitute just messing around in the kitchen, but this is even better and oh-so-easy to make - thanks! I love garlic but did use powder to help keep it more even across the whole dish. I think I'll see if I can find that cookbook, too; I'm sure it would get a lot of use around here!
