A simple salad which can be eaten on its own or use it to stuff your Pita Bread. Tastes excellent both ways. Easy and quick to prepare. A must salad if you prepare your own Falafel & Pita Bread.
Ingredients (serves 4):
1/4 cabbage (small), to be finely shredded (note: I cut them coarsely this time)
1 tbsp salt
2 medium-sized tomatoes, to be washed & cut into cubes
1 cucumber, to be washed & cut into cubes
chopped mint leaves
3 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp lemon juice
salt to taste
a pinch of Sumac (optional)
a pinch of cumin powder (optional)
In a bowl, combine shredded cabbage and salt together. Leave aside until cabbage has softened.
Then, add cubed tomatoes, cucumber and chopped mint leaves. Mix well.
In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, salt, Sumac & cumin powder (if using). Adjust seasoning. Pour dressing over salad and toss.
