Great by itself or with baba ganoush and pita. This one will definately need about a day in the fridge with occasional stirring to reach full flavor.
This was so good, with a smoky, nutty flavor. I wasn't sure about it at first, but the longer it sat, the more flavorful it became. I prefer a milder onion flavor, so I used scallions, and I used unrefined coconut oil instead of butter. I don't eat peanuts, so instead of peanut powder, I used almond powder and finely ground cashews, which are fairly sweet, so I omitted the sugar. Next time, I'll add just a bit more cumin seed to enhance the smoky flavor. This was perfect with Indian Dahl with Spinach, also from this site.
I fried the onion in a small amount to oil so my DH could eat this. leaving out the chile pepper for his portion. I should have left my portion without the pepper also, as it was very strong! Next time I might use a bell pepper instead of the hot variety! This went nicely as the filling with some beans in a burrito!
This is a delicious salad and one that I will make again. I do disagree with the reviews that say to let it sit for a day. This is what I did and it turned sort of a sick grey. When I made the salad it was crisp and absolultly beautiful. I would say that maybe 2-3 hours in the fridge would bring out the flavors without wrecking the gorgious fresh color of the salad. I also added bell peppers along with the chilis because I wanted more color and less spice. All in all this was a very good recipe. I rate it five stars for the recipe and 3 stars for the reviews. ;)
