This was great! Went really well with the Lebanese spinach and meat pies and pita brought yesterday to a group lunch. I might've overdone the garlic-- we all needed gum/mints afterward. But it was worth it. I used more olive oil than called for; probably a 2:1 ratio of oil to lemon juice. The mint is really critical to this dish (in my humble opinion). It brightens and enhances all the other flavors.
I love this recipe. I added chopped fresh parsley instead of mint and a can of chickpeas. I didn't have any olives so left those out but I like olives. Definite keeper.
This salad is outstanding. I served it at a dinner party tonight and every single person at a table asked for a second serving :) It's a good thing a made extra. Thank you so much echo echo. This is a definite keeper.
Oh wow! This salad was very tasty. I had a cucumber I needed to use so I halved this recipe. I also didn't have mint so I used spinach diced up. It worked out great! Thank you for sharing this with us.
Delicious salad--thanks for posting!
Made this to accompany Kit's Bacon and Tomato Grilled Cheese Sandwich (great thing that tomatoes are in season!!). This is a wonderful refreshing, tasty salad! We loved it!! Added a bit more lemon and some fresh mint from my garden. Used lebanese cucumbers. Thanks echo echo - this is a great salad!!
I really enjoyed this as a light lunch along with Garlic Butter Parmesan Crostini! Wonderful! thank you!
Lovely and fresh-tasting. Similar to a greek salad but the mint makes it different and very, very good. A keeper.
