Default REC: Cool summer salad


I was on the hunt for somthing different for a summer salad and ran
across this. It's cool, crisp, a bit spicy and herbacious.
I just might live on this during the summer.

Here's how I made it.

I'll try this, it does sound good. I'm going to have to cut the mint
back to almost nothing because I just don't care for mint greens.
Otherwise, it is an intriguing combination of flavors for raw veggies.
Thanks for the recipe.

Yes, it does. Sound like a typical delightful Med salad. But, ye gads! Half a
cup of OO!? Is that a typo?

?? seems about right to me-
4 medium tomatoes, cored, seeded; minced
3 medium cucumbers; seeded, minced
2 serrano chili, stemmed, seeded; minced
1 red bell pepper. stemmed, seeded; minced
1 large white onion,; minced
3 lemons, juiced and zested


Looks like an 8-10 serving salad. 1T oil per serving.

I just did a similarly sized watermelon and barley salad and was
surprised it only had 1/2 C oil.

I think Koko will let you live if you choose to use less oil, though.
She's nice like that. g

Israeli Chopped Salad


Thanks, this looks like a fancier version of a chopped salad I was
looking at this morning.

Maybe I'll use za'atar (because I have it) in place of the sumac and
mint (which I don't have).

It always surprises me when people demonstrate they have no ability to
use their own judgment.

Nope, that's right, and no, it's not too much; well, for my taste, but
but I don't need to tell you to use what pleases you.

LOl, thanks Jim.
I'm not in an "off with his head" mood very often ;-)

So use parsley if you like the rest of the recipe but have the same
cilantro-hating gene that I do.

I interchange cilantro, watercress, parsley depending on my mood or
availability.

I had Israeli couscous today and I had cilantro too, but it was in
salad dressing on a salad of corn, black beans, tomato etc. and it was
delicious.
