Author Notes: A traditional Pakistani tomato, red onion and cucumber salad, spiced with dry roasted cumin, chaat masala (piquant Asian blend), loads of fresh cilantro and mint leaves is a perfect accompaniment to a barbeque, filled in pita wraps with grilled meat or cheese. No Pakistani barbeque would be served without it! I love adding pomegranate to this recipe which adds a bit of sweet sourness.Sumayya Usmani
