This salad sounds yummy but I don't think it is a Syrian salad, from the recipe it appears to be a Greek style salad. My hubby is Syrian. We did have Syrian salad tonight all it had in it was cucumber, tomato, onion, mint, lemon juice, olive oil and salt and pepper. A little parsley can be added as well but he didn't feel like it tonight. This one is good with lamb kabobs. Syrians eat certain salads with certain foods...
i tried this and it turned out to be so good and it fills you up so if you want to eat it, don't think you can eat a whole plate with rice or anything else!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Very good! Only change was instead of feta I used bleu cheese. Dressing was perfect!! Thank you for a great salad!
