Middle Eastern Green Salad

This is a versatile salad that goes well with rice and other dishes!



One head of Romaine lettuce, washed and cut into small pieces

4 Roma tomatoes (or equivalent in larger tomatoes) chopped into small pieces

1 Green Bell Pepper, chopped small

2 cloves garlic minced

1 cucumber peeled and chopped small

2 lemons juiced

salt to taste

Olive oil

1 tsp. dried mint or fresh

Chop all ingredients small and put into bowl. Add mint and salt and toss. Add lemon juice mixed with a few spoons of Olive oil. Toss salad well. This is delicious when put inside of a Shwarma (sandwich) or with rice or just on its own. I will put a Kufta Sandwich soon and this salad goes great in it!

      • I love salads and will try this one soon. In my fridge I have my son’s cucumbers, sliced onion, carrots and sugar peas in a covered dish with a creamy vinaigrette dressing. I have been eating it every meal; even taking it to work with my sandwich. 🙂

  10. Although we are not Arabian, but we here in Pakistan make the same kind of salad with our food except the garlic part. We don’t put garlic in this salad however in everything else we use garlic and ginger, in almost all our dishes 🙂
