Why I Love This Recipe
I just discovered this salad in a new Israeli cookbook I bought. It's called "The Book of New Israeli Food", with Persian, British, Moroccan, and other influences. I'm obsessed. This salad is so fresh and flavorful.
Ingredients You'll Need
3 firm ripe tomatoes, cut into small chunks
3 cucumbers, cut into small chunks
1 onion, chopped (red) 4 small radishes, grated
1/3 cup fresh coriander, chopped
1/3 cup fresh mint, chopped
1/3 cup fresh parsley, chopped
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2-3 cloves garlic, crushed
5 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
2 pita breads (optional)
If using pita breads, brush with olive oil and toast in oven. Cool and break into large chunks.
Mix rest of ingredients, add the pita chunks, toss everything together.
