"This salad is a perfect side dish for any phase of the South Beach Diet, or any other diet for that matter, and it's an incredible tasting summer treat for anyone, whether or not you're on a diet. I think it pairs wonderfully with any kind of grilled meat or fish."

Im from Missouri but I live in Egypt now. I made it for my family and Middle Eastern friends. They said it tasted as if i've been cooking this dish for years. so simply and quick. I will add this dish as a topping to my chicken burrito.
based on the reviews i thought i would have really enjoyed this.. it just tasted way too herbal for me.. i did sub cilantro for parsley and green onion for sweet onion and i cut the olive oil in half and nearly tripled the amount of lemon juice.. i also added one crushed garlic.. still unhappy with the dish at this point, i added some salad mix (iceberg lettuce, shredded carrot, and purple cabbage) and a good amount of salt.. if the title said this was some kind of topping and not "salad" i would have understood.. this was clearly meant to be added to something, not eaten as a snack or a "salad".. it made me think of tabbouleh without the bulgur/couscous
Very nice, light-tasting tomato salad, great for a hot summer day. I've been looking for a way to use up some of my fresh mint, and it was a good addition to this salad. I added in a little more lemon juice (to our taste) which really brightened the flavor.
My Turkish friend doesn't use the cucumber but uses either green chillis or green capsicum (depending what's on hand) and Spanish Onions. We love it! It's such a versatile and delicious salad. I recommend it with the Haydari and Koftas for Tapas.
Light and delicious. A great summer salad.
I've made this recipe for years, it's called Shiraz in Iran. I love it, except I learned it using basil instead of parsley. I bet the parsley is just as good just a little different. And I chunk the vegetables instead of finely dicing. Delicious cool salad for the summer.
