This recipe is the best. It must be the mint instead of parsley others suggest.
I do wish the posted sites would tell how many the recipe serves. Suggestion: Serves ???? many.

Hi Ben,
It depends how much you serve and what else is served with it. But I
would say 2-3 servings. The most of the recipes that I've posted say "how many servings they are" :)

Binnur,
When we were in Turkey, we had a great neighbor that spoke english and had us over alot. She made a salad where she just added lemon and then sprinkled something that looked like paparika(in color). Do you know what this spice would be. I was thinking that it was sumac. Would I be correct?

Sherree,
I don't think it's sumac because sumac gives sourness like lemon juice. Probably it was Turkish paprika or Turkish red pepper:)

This salad is amazing. The cubanelle pepper adds just the right amount of heat, at least for my tastes. Very refreshing and, as the recipe states, it was a good complement to the lamb dish I made.
