Israeli Salad My version of this salad omits the peppers (since I'm allergic to them), but adds Feta cheese. I also use Lemon cucumbers, tomatoes, and parsely from my garden. Reply

Israeli Salad This is traditional Russian salad. Why would it be called an Israeli Salad? Israeli Salad in Russian cuisine is something all together different made with eggplant. Reply

Growing up my mom or grandma never used lemon juice in any Russian salads. We used Mayo.

This is an Israeli salad except it's missing lettuce.
I would do everything except omit the mint. Reply
