This is absolutely delicious! I used kalamata olives which were great. I also soaked the onions for about 30 minutes--I don't normally like raw onions but they were great. And the mint is critical--I considered leaving it out but ended up making a special trip to the store to get it and I'm glad I did because it made all the difference. Try this!!
This was wonderfull and gorgeous! Odd but terrific! I used kalamata olives sprinkled a little bit of balsamic vinegar over it...just a smidge and used cilantro instead of mint (I just don't like mint unless in't in a julep). I know this will be a hard sell at my nexy party but I will make people taste it and I know they will be floored by the flavours. It's a sweet salty tangy sensation. The perfect PMS salad! It fulfills all flavor craving at once!
We were served a salad similar to this at a dinner party my friend gave. I saw it and thought "How strange!" Then after trying it I thought it was aweome. Fresh salty sweet and tangy all at once. I wanted to reproduce the salad found this recipie and it's very close! The only alteration I made was to cut back on the amount of mint. I used 1/4 c. flat leaf parsley and about 10 mint leaves. Many guests have been surprised and delighted by this salad at our summer dinner table.
Oh my! What a great combination. I did use Kalamata olives which I am glad I did and substituted FRESH basil (since we preferred basil to Mint ) instead of mint and this was a winner! A real surprise! I was leary of trying it but what the heck! I have made this salad several times and we prefer the changes of basil and Kalamata Olives to give it an even more special flavor. Wonderfull salad. I have lots of favorites on Allrecipes but this maybe close to the top! Thanks for the recipe!
This tasted as good as it looked! I didn't have fresh mint on hand so I used some dried spearmint and that gave it a spiffy cool note. My husband really liked it too even the olives (which he never eats)...one caveat though if you use kalamata olives try to get ones that are packed with very little oil (brine is best) as the one's I had on hand were packed with vinegar and oil and made the salad a little oily.
Followed the recipe exactly and two of us devoured every bit of this salad as a sidedish for dinner and as leftovers for lunch the next day. Perfect for hot weather and I'll definitely make this again!
I havn't made this recipe exactly but this is what we would have for dinner on a hot and muggy evening. This is a typical middle eastern thing. However we don't serve it as a salad with dressing. Just cut up some watermelon and have some good feta cheese and some good black olives on the side. Love it!
I just had myself a fabulous summer lunch! I made this salad and sat down with a glass of wine - DELICIOUS! They're right... the flavours of the ingredients combine beautifully to make a wonderful taste sensation. (I didn't have fresh mint so I used a little dried mint) I will buy some fresh mint and I am making this for my dinner guests next week. I will FORCE them to try it!;-)
Followed the recipe largely as is except that I used less mint than listed. This was pretty good the first night -- unusual but surprisingly tasty. It didn't really keep so well for the second night though. So don't plan to make enough for more than one night.
