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.

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.

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.

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.
