"There are two versions of this recipe. Timatim firfir includes broken up pieces of injera- that’s why it’s called firfir. The other recipe is the same, but minus the injera- so if you don’t have easy access to an Ethiopian grocery store or don't have homemade Ijera (#recipe26479), just go ahead and make the timatim salad . Berbere and jalapeño peppers are key ingredients, so no matter how much you use, the salad will have at least a little bit of a kick to it. But the salad is very flexible and you can alter the proportions to suit your own tastes. And yet every time I make this recipe, I find myself standing in front of the open refrigerator late at night, devouring the salad straight from the bowl."

I was missing this salad with my Ethiopian leftovers, and with plenty of Injera to spare, plus a ripe garden tomato, I was all set to have this yummy tart salad to balance the spicy flavors of the dishes. I was really looking forward to it, but it came out even better than my expectations, and what I have ever received from a restaurant. I used white wine vinegar and really liked the combination of it with the lemon. I left the jalapenos out and thought the amount of berbere was just the right little kick without it being too much against the other spicy food. I so enjoyed this - thank you for posting it.
