The Other Lahab Salad


There’s a new favorite salad on our table these days.  It’s less leafy, more crunchy.  Here’s the recipe:

1 large “english” cucumber or 4 small “persian” cucumbers (the thin-skinned kind)

4 plum tomatoes or tomatoes on the vine

6 of your favorite brand of dill pickles (if you use baby dills or cornichons, use about a dozen)

1 (14 oz.) can chick peas, drained and rinsed

1 (14 oz.) can of slivered beets, drained

Juice of two lemons

1/4 cup olive oil

Salt and pepper to taste

Chop the cucumbers, pickles and the tomatoes into bite-sized pieces.  Drain and rinse the chick peas and the slivered beets and toss everything together.  Salt and pepper to taste and toss with the juice of two lemons and a 1/4 cup olive oil.    Unlike most salads, this is also good the second day and gets pinker as it sits.
