View Full Version : Arabic Salad

Jul 13th, 2005, 10:51 PM
Anyone know anything about arabic salad? I make it with falafel. My favorite meal that I eat, period. I put it on top of falafel in a pita with veganiase. LOVE IT! Here is a recipe, so easy!

1 large cucumber
1 large tomato
1 or 1.5 green peppers
some green onions (about 1/8 cup maybe)
some parsley (about a tablespoon)

*cut all of the above ingredients into small pieces, about the size of a US dime. chop the parsley (or pluck it) and the green onions into very small pieces. combine in a large bowl

1/3 cup lemon juice
1/3 cup olive oil
garlic salt (to taste, about 1 tsp.?)

*this is the dressing. mix it all up and put in the veggies.

*place this all in the fridge for about 20-30 minutes to chill. serve it in a bowl and eat it with a spoon or top on falafel.

I LOVE this stuff, make it once a week at least. let me know if you try it!

Sounds good! It almost reminds me of Tabouleh which is one of my favorite salads.

Tabouleh is wonderful. My father is arabic, and I was raised eating this stuff (along with that damn meat they always stuck in my gace). Tabouleh, Hummous, Arabic Salad, Falafel, etc.

Yes, that does sound very good - perhaps like fatoush only without the bread?

Yup, Harpy. Fatoosh is traditionally left over salad that they add baked bread to to "freshen" it up.

I hated tahini until I discovered that the reason I hated it was because I was buying the unhulled one. The hulled one is much milder and I really like it :)

i didn't know that the unhulled one existed!
hey do you eat it with tomato sauce too? :D

I love arabic food too! I think I'm addicted to hummus. Actually, I have some felafel in the freezer. Maybe I'll take one out and have it for breakfast or lunch!

Really? Don't buy it! It is bitter and too strong :eek:

I can't say I have ever had tahini with tomato sauce before, but I LOVE tomato sauce :D
