This is a very simple and refreshing salad. My grandfather used to prepare this for us as kids. It goes well in a pita with hummus, or on the side with just about anything. Alot of the ingredients are also interchangable, and depend on your taste buds. I really like this salad tossed in some tahini sauce.
From the Canadian Living Test Kitchen.By The Canadian Living Test Kitchen In Hebrew, this salad is called Salat Yerakot Israeli and is always cut in a perfect dice. You may chop and combine the vegetables up to 2 hours ahead, then cover and set aside on the counter. Add the dressing just before serving.
I posted this out of frustration for the Israeli salad recipes out there that overwhelmed the salad with silly herbs and were not needed. This version is simple, clean cut, fresh and quick. It comes from my Israeli husband and is the Be'er Sheva style.
