Cabbage Salad

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

Dressing Ingredients:
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.

Bon Appetit!
