½ loaf of Arabic Bread (substitute pita bread)

1 small clove garlic

salt and pepper to taste

½ cup lemon juice

½ cup parsley

3 green onions

1 cup fresh mint or ¼ cup dried mint

Toast the bread to a golden brown and break it into 1½ inch pieces. Set aside.

In a salad bowl, mash the garlic, or use a garlic press, and mix the garlic well

with the salt and pepper. Add the lemon juice to the garlic mixture and blend well.

Coarsely chop the parsley, green onions, and mint. Tear the lettuce as for a tossed

green salad. Add the parsley, green onions, mint, cucumber, tomatoes, hot pepper,
