This kosher salad was posted for the World Tour 2005 RecipeZaar event. The source is The Hadassah Jewish Holiday Cookbook - Traditional Recipes from Contemporary Kosher Kitchens. DH and I love the flavors of this simple salad. The fresh herbs really make this dish. As a bonus, it's also a South Beach diet friendly dish.

Thank you for posting this recipe. I left out the mint and dill since I didn't have any, plus added a little bit of red onion for variety. I also wanted to warn others to avoid the mistake that I made. Try to put the "dressing" on as close to serving as possible. Salt will draw out the liquid in the vegetables and when it was time for me to serve the salad a few hours later, they were swimming in liquid.
