The flavorings for the tomato mint salad are perfect! I used a regular tomato and then drained before topping the meat with it. Grilled cubes in frying pan and it worked out fine. At first thought the seasonings were too spicy for the meat but then realized my meat weight was smaller than Deantini%u2019s recommended size. Served with orzo only b/c I have no couscous right now. Thanks Deantini for sharing.
