I've been asked why is this salad so common. Maybe because lettuce is not, as it probably consumes a lot of water to grow, but the ingredients for this are. This is what I made based on what I found in the market.
Tomatoes - about 4, cubed
Cucumbers - about 3, cubed
Juice of 2 lemons
Olive oil - about 1/2 the amount of lemon juice
Salt - a large pinch
Zatar seasoning - sprinkle as much as you want of this popular middle eastern mix available at every spice shop
Parsley and mint leaves torn into bits
Hadassa's Chocolate Mousse
3 egg whites, beaten
I used pasturized eggs, added cream of tartar per instructions since I was doing this for company and read that this would help stabalize the froth, and I beat to soft peak)
100 g dark chocolate
Dark, not bitter.
"A little bit of margarine."
This is how Hadassa put it. I used coconut oil. You add it to the melting chocolate. I think it helps reduce the chances of scorching if your melting technique is imperfect. I added about a tsp when melted the chocolate.
1 Spoon wine or brandy
I used about a tbsp of vanilla paste
Fold the vanilla and melted chocolate into the egg froth. Refrigerate or freeze. Mine got gritty on freezing but Hadassa's didn't. There was probably some subtle difference in technique. It was still good, though if I do it over again I'll refrigerate only.
Tamar's Miracle Chicken and Potatoes
When you cook this, everything goes in at the same time and is done at the same time: a miracle!
Chicken cut up pieces with bone.
Fill a baking dish. I think one that's smaller with higher sides might allow the potatoes to sit in the juices, which is nice.
Add whatever spices you'd like with this kind of thing. Tamar uses salt, pepper, and lots of paprika, which was very good and quite pretty.
Cover and cook at 350, in my oven the miracle took exactly an hour to occur.
