Tomato Salad with Tahineh Sauce, A Quick & Easy Middle Eastern Standard
This recipe is by far one of the more versatile and widely used dishes in the Middle East, especially in areas like Lebanon, Jordan, and Israel. Not only does it make an incredibly healthy and flavorful appetizer salad, but many people choose to enjoy this over a bed of their favorite lentil dish or as the finishing touch to their falafel pita sandwich. When you're craving a tabouleh salad, but don't really want to go crazy chopping everything into bits for an hour or two, this salad has the same satisfyingly fresh flavor! -------------------------------------------------- Tomato Salad with Tahineh Sauce 3 medium-sized tomatoes 1 large cucumber 2 cloves of garlic, chopped Juice of 2 lemons 1/2 cup of tahineh 2 tablespoons olive oil Salt and pepper to taste 1. Wash and dice tomatoes. Peel and chop cucumber to medium-fine. 2. Prepare Tahineh sauce by mixing Tahineh, garlic, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Add water to make a thick sauce. Add to tomatoes and cucumber. Mix well in bowl. 3. Pour olive oil over salad and garnish with dried mint.
