Give your tomato salad some Egyptian flair.

This side salad is seen throughout Cairo in the local restaurants and on some carts. It differs from other salads because each tomato is sliced, but not the whole way through, so the tomato slices are still attached at the bottom. The slits provide little pockets in which to stuff the walnuts and the potent baladi dressing. The end result is an artistic-looking stuffed tomato that can serve as a side to any meal.
