Jarjeer (Arugula) Salad

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by UmmBinat

A traditional Middle Eastern salad served all the way to Sudan. It's simple and DH likes it a lot since he likes mushrooms. Modified from a recipe found on allrecipes.com posted by IMANKAY. Note: Sumac is available as a ground spice in Middle Eastern markets, it comes from the dried berries of a shrub that grows wild in Mediterranean. The taste is sour, fruity and astringent.

I was surprised at how truly tasty and flavorful this was! I cannot find sumac, so I had to use extra lemon juice. I used grape tomatoes for the tomato and a Vidalia onion for the sweet onion. I also added a touch of freshly ground pepper. The results was simple, yet delicious! Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT7 by a Hot Pink Lady.
