Simple Middle Eastern Salad

Ingredients:

For the salad
3-5 Persian cucumbers
2 Tomatoes (I like to use vine ripe tomatoes)
2 Raddishes
1/4 red onion diced fine
½ cup fresh parsley leaves
5 fresh mint leaves

For the dressing
1 lemon, juiced (about 1/3 cup)
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon sumac
1 teaspoon dried mint, crushed
Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Cut the cucumbers in half moon shapes or diced, dice the tomatoes, slice the raddish in half and then in slices and finely cut the parsley and mint leaves. Add all of the chopped ingredients to a salad bowl

Directly on the top of the chopped vegetables, add all the dressing ingredients. Mix and serve as desired with a meal, as a side dish or eat as is.

Serving options: Add garbanzo beans, chicken, steak, or seafood for some extra protein and to turn the salad into a meal. Or, serve alongside a main meal for a fresh bite. Enjoy!

    I made this the same day I saw the video. Very healthy and tasty. It’s best to eat it all the same day, though. The next day the tomatoes don’t look as crisp but as far as the recipe goes, I did exactly to the T and it came out fabulous.
