      I tweaked this to five stars! Here is what I did: I used beautiful garden fresh red tomatoes and English cucumber, freshly squeezed lemon juice, sea salt, freshly ground black pepper and organic tahini from my local health food store. In addition I took duonytes idea and added sliced baby purple onion and some flat leaf parsley pretty chopped. For the dressing I added 2-3 tbs of Helmans olive oil mayonnaise to be soy free, this was good for us as it took the peak bitter taste off the tahini which I didn't like so much the first time without this modification. I also did add a bit of water. I would make this again. Made for Ramadan Tag.

      This reminds me of something that I get as a side at a Mediterranean restaurant near my home that I never knew the name of. I liked this quite well, added some chopped red onion to part of it, which may not be traditional, but was quite tasty. I also added some chopped parsley, which I think worked well. Thanks for a new way to enjoy my bounty of tomatoes.
