Lebanese Tomato Salad (Fatoush)

What you need: 

4 tomatoes
1/2 cucumber
2 cloves garlic
1/8 cup green onions
dash of salt
juice of 1 lemon
1 tablespoon oil of choice (I use flaxseed or olive oil)
1/4 cup fresh mint
1/8 cup fresh parsley
toasted or stale pita bread

What you do: 

Chop tomatoes, cucumber, green onions and herbs.
Pound garlic and salt together to form a paste. I use a pestle and a mortar.
Mix garlic/salt and chopped ingredients.
Add oil and toss. Add lemon juice and toss. Salad will be very juicy.
Just before serving, tear pita into bite size pieces and toss with salad. Bread will soak up juices.

I make a similar version to this all the time, it's so delicious and healthy. As a tip, chuck in a can of chickpeas as well. It bulks it up and adds some protein, but then I'll use any excuse to eat more chickpeas.
