Cubed Garlic Salad

It was bound to happen. One night, there was a craving. Maybe it was the influence of a movie night involving “My Big, Fat, Greek Wedding”… Regardless, we stumbled upon Smitten Kitten, one of our favourite web site’s. She calls her meal Israeli Salad, but it’s so delicious we won’t mind that it’s not Greek. Enjoy!
