    ellie_'s Note:

    For Zaar World Tour II (Middle East/Persia) Recipe Source: The Book Club Cookbook discussing "Nine Parts of Desire: The Hidden World of Islamic Women" by Geraldine Brooks. I haven't made this salad yet, but it seems like it would be a wonderful summer salad.

      Delicious. But I have to comment on the introduction. I owned the book, Nine Parts Of Desire: The Hidden World of Islamic Women, and I thew it in the garbage because that what it is, garbage. It is an anti-Islamic book and has so many things in it which Geraldine Brooks claims to be part of Islam which are not. I highly recommend not reading it. Instead find out what Islam really is. I did not let the salad sit for the 30 minutes in the refrigerator because lunch was to be served immediately and it was pretty good that way. In fact I may not let it sit when I make this again. I may have changed some proportions slightly. I used a good quality extra virgin, cold pressed olive oil, freshly squeezed lime juice, less fresh garlic, to taste, sea salt, freshly ground black pepper, plum tomatoes which I didn't bother to seed, English cucumber which I did not seed either, just peeled, the scallions, fresh mint from the garden, and no optional out of preference against heat. I will make this again. Made for Veggie Swap 36 ~ July 2011.

      I bought a big bag of ripe tomatoes at a discount at the produce store, and this was such a great way to use them! A very refreshing mixture which I served on chopped Romaine leaves as a side dish. I totally don't care for mint, so used cilantro as littlebird85 suggested, and enjoyed this very much. The dressing was a little lacking, but worth tinkering with! Made for Newest Zaar 2/11.

      Wonderful recipe! I didn't have mint, so I used cilantro. With the cilantro it would make a really good ceviche base (just add shrimp and avocado!).

      I also crisped up some salami and crumbled it in right before eating the salad. MMMmmmmmmmmm! Prosciutto would also be delicious!
