Description

This Middle Eastern recipe with a Mediterranean flare is a perfectly healthy recipe that you can enjoy any time of day or night! The best part is that it's versatile; you don't have to follow my recipe to the book. For example, you can replace the c…

rrot with cucumbers, or use cilantro or basil in place of parsley. The most important ingredients, in my opinion, are the tomato, red onion, and olive oil as they really contribute to the flavor. Also, as you see in the picture, I have added beans to my recipe, but eliminated it here as it changed the taste a bit. So chickpeas would be a better fix if you have them handy. You can also sprinkle some almonds or walnuts on top for added texture. Light as air!
