SOULVAKIA (continued)

   Slightly earlier than 1944 is AND THE GREEKS: A BOOK OF HELLENIC RECIPES (Near East Foundation, NYC, 1942), pg. 38:

   _(Arnia Souvlakia)_
>From a loin of lamb cut pieces of tender lean meat about one inch square.  Push these pieces on a skewer placing half a small tomato at each end.  Season them with salt, pepper, and a sprinkle of thyme.  Squeeze some lemon juice over the whole and set to grill over the charcoal or under a hot flame.  When done serve on a bed of chopped lettuce and garnish with plain rice pilaff.

(Bean Salad, Egyptian Eggplant Salad and Eggplant Salad are mentioned, along with a listing of salad ingredients that does not include feta cheese--ed.)
