bowl of tomato and cucumber slicesThis was my first favorite salad, as far as I can remember. I used to beg my mum to make it for me as a young girl. In Iran, it's popular as a summer salad but I make it year round. It's very healthy and absolutely delicious! Try it next to a protein and/or rice. When the juices from this salad mix with your other foods, it's heavenly!

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbsp. oil
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice (lemon juice is fine, too)
  • 1 tsp. cumin (I like cumin seeds better - if you can find them, use them!)
  • 1 bunch fresh mint, finely chopped
  • 4 Tbsp. flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
  • 5 Persian cucumbers or 2 English "Hot House" cucumbers, cut into 1/8 inch cubes. Basically you want seedless cucumbers with a thin skin)
  • 4 tomatoes, cut into 1/8 inch cubes
  • 1/2 a small red onion, cut into 1/8 inch cubes
  • salt and pepper to taste
*It's not traditional, but I use one bell pepper (of any color) in mine. It gives it a fantastic new dimension!

Directions:

Whisk together oil and lime juice. Add cumin, mint, parsley, cucumbers, tomatoes, and red onion then toss to combine. And salt and pepper to taste. Serve chilled.

I started making this several years ago. It was winter time, so there was not a big variety of fresh veggies for a salad, but I did have cucumbers and cherry tomatoes, and with a young child, I always had string cheese.

Quarter several fresh garden tomatoes. Peel and slice one or two or more fresh cucumbers. Peel and slice one or two good, sweet onions. . .
