Cucumber Tomato Salad

I feel silly for needing a recipe for this basic salad, but it helped me get the taste right. My mother-in-law calls this Shepard's Salad and serves it regularly. It's a typical Turkish dish. I changed this recipe from the original by adding oil, salt and pepper.


4 mini cucumbers, roughly chopped
1 cup grape or cherry tomatoes, quartered or halved
2/3 cup fresh parsley and/or mint, chopped
1/3 cup chopped green onion
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice (half a lemon)
1 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

  1. Stir together cucumber, tomatoes, herbs, green onions and lemon juice. Let sit for a half-hour to an hour before serving. Supposed to be served with bread.
