Israeli Salad / Bulgarian Salad

Yummy. Israelis demand salad with every meal. This one is so common it is called an “Israeli Salad”. I really liked Vada’s; she used lots of tomatoes, cucumber and lemon juice and not much else. I don’t bother with croutons. Adding Feta turns an Israeli Salad into a Bulgarian Salad.
