My mother made this recipe for us all my life. It is difficult to guess amounts when you are used to just pouring things in my sight, so you may have to play around with the ingredients on this one or write me. You can also add green bellpepper to it, but my hubby is not fond of them, so I don't normally. I like it with about one medium pepper in it though. I'll try to put a photo in soon. I am making this tonight.Submitted by ABIGAILSING

Taken directly from Healthy Cooking Magazine. Made this for a BBQ this weekend and it was SO YUMMY! One of my friends thought the watermelon was tomato, so it takes on a cucumber/tomato salad taste.Submitted by KDKOSMO
These are made in a muffin pan and are a quick grab in the morning. I have two versions. This one has less cheese than the original so the spinach really takes the lead. It is low in calorie, quick to make, and yummy.Submitted by RACHAAL
Zaalouk is a Moroccan eggplant and tomato salad that incorporates a large amount of garlic and fresh herbs. It's best made in the height of Summer when the tomatoes are in their prime, and can be served warm or cold - I prefer it warm and mixed with chickpeas.Submitted by JO_JO_BA
