One of my favorite salads, and follows after my dill bhaji recipe/curry. It is very rare that I get some good big bundles of dill, and when I do, sure, I make, to pick up 3 –4 bunches of the dill @ the Indian stores. Reason being, in other grocery stores it is a tiny bunch sold as a herb. This salad should be prepared fresh as the lemon, tomato and salt will make it juicy, so do not prepare it ahead of time. I haven’t included cucumber in the salad because of the allergies but go ahead and include it to make the salad more crunchy. This tastes great and is as good as a raita on the side with regular meals. The salad goes to Divya’s Show Me Your Salad , Sudeshna’s Carnival of Salad and since dill is very much a part of the middle eastern cuisine, this also goes to Regional Recipes – Middle East by Joanne. Enjoy the salad !!!
