Arabic Appetizers

The appetizers that accompany Arabic food are very refreshing. If you are walking in very hot weather, the last thing that you want is something hot first thing in your stomach... so here is an example of a very typical arrangement:
Tomato, lettuce or cabbage, spearmint, cucumber, basil and carrots. These are usually accompanied by pita bread, sometimes hummus and usually a pickled selection like the one below:

Green and black olives, pickles, and spicy peppers.

Have I mentioned that Arabic food is one of my favorite parts of Abu Dhabi?
