Israeli Salad Decked Out!

With mostly freshly picked home grown vegetables, I assembled Israeli Salad sans the peppers (my plants were started too late), then spruced it up a bit with sliced hard cooked eggs from my dear Welsummer ladies.  Had some mushrooms that needed using, so sliced a couple of those as well to add.

As soon in the spring that i can source good veggies, i start making my Israeli Salad.  I eat a whole batch nearly everyday that i can through the growing season until the veggies get yucky again.

My recipe is simple:

1 green pepper chopped
1 tomato chopped
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 cucumber chopped
2 tablespoons dried cilantro or parsley (double that if using fresh)
1 teaspoon Real salt (double this if you are sweating a lot and need salt)
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon olive oil

Stir it all up.  As with most veggies and fruits – room temperature is best for lovely flavours.
