This is more a dip than a salad. goes well with pita or turkish bread. You can have it as hot as you like, just adjust the amount of chilli powder that goes into it.

Hi arira, this is a delicious recipe! I, too, halved the recipe and used green and orange peppers because that was all I had. I ate it warm with my dinner tonight and I'm sure it will be even better tomorrow for lunch after it has chilled and stewed in all that delicious garlic. Yum yum!

This is my sort of food, and something I could eat for days and days an never tire of. I made a half recipe, which was easy apart from mixing up the amount of parsley and adding the full amount. I finished this with the juice of half a lemon, otherwise followed the recipe exactly.
