I’m going to admit right up front that I’m not sure whether I’m posting this photo because I liked the recipe or because I wanted to show off the bowl that I got in a little art gallery in Hotchkiss, Colorado. Don’t get me wrong. The salad was good–light and cool and it really went well with the hummus and baba ganoush I made for dinner last night. But the bowl–mocha brown with shiny, copper-colored stripes of glazing–is a work of art. Too bad that pesky salad is covering most of it up!

Hi there, in Turkish ezme means puree. A Turkish ezme salad is very different from the one you have posted which is probably closer to a coban, (shepherds) salad. afiyet olsun…

A great recipe! Enjoyed it very much. My only comment on this and other similar recipes is that it pays to de-seed the tomatoes and the cucumbers; this stops the salad ‘getting wet’ as it sits. See what you think!
