This salad is great as a side dish to Falafels. I get the falafel mix in a box by Telma (6.35 oz.) at Vons. I form them into small patties instead of balls because they fit into the pita easier and then fry on both sides till firm in a non- stick pan sprayed with Pam. Place in a whole wheat pita with garlic humas(Trader Joe’s) or make your tomatoes, lettuce or sliced cucumbers.
