    Cookgirl's Note:

    This "bright" and refreshing salad, from has all my favorite ingredients. We like to use Sesame Pita Crisps to scoop up the salad, although lavosh would work, too! Named after a mountain in southeast Anatolia. Sumac is available in Middle Eastern shops or online. It will make a huge difference if you use the freshest, best tomatoes and freshest parsley you can find.

      I could live on stuff like this! I just wish I would have homegrown tomatoes right now. The flavors and colors are outstanding. One tsp of sumac may seem like a lot, but the pomegranate syrup balances it. The toasted (I very lightly toasted mine) walnuts for garnish were a great touch. In the end I actually mixed them right into the salad. I made this in the morning to have later for lunch. I used mini flatbreads to scoop up this yummy mixture. Next time I must remember to double this! Thank you, cg!

      Finally got my hands on some pomegranate syrup and sumac, so this was the perfect recipe to try them out. I thought the syrup would make this more sweet than it did, I probably added more like 2 tsp to get a little more of that flavour. Great combo, I really love this style of salad. Paired it with a stuffed portabello mushroom for lunch, and served the rest at a BBQ dinner party. Look forward to making this again soon.

      Very good Middle Eastern style salad. I used shallots for the onion, grape tomatoes chopped, flat leaf parsley, freshly squeezed lemon juice. I did not add the garnish and used way less cayenne pepper as to our preferences. I served it with Bamya ( Lamb or Beef and Okra Stew) which was a delicious meal. I will make this often!
