Ingredients

  • 3 Persian or Lebanese cucumbers
  • 2 tomatoes
  • ½ red onion

Dressing

  • 3 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium lemon squeezed (approx 4-5 tbsp) or traditionally Ab Ghooreh (unripe sour grape juice)
  • Handful fresh mint
  • Salt to taste

Instructions

  • Dice cucumbers, tomatoes into small cubes, approximately the same size
  • Dice onion into small cubes. I prefer to dice them into smaller sized cubes and soak in water for 10 minutes so the taste isn’t as strong
  • Add all ingredients to a bowl and pour over the olive oil and lemon juice then season with salt
    Top with fresh mint, mix together and allow it to sit for 10-15 minutes before serving
