Light, savory and refreshing, this is served as a side to falafel, schwarma and other mid-eastern delicacies. Because it doesn’t contain lettuce or leafy greens, it can last up to two days in the refrigerator (three if you’re stretching it!).
3 tomatoes, diced
3 cucumbers, diced
½ red onion, finely chopped
3 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp lemon juice
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp pepper
Chop an equal amount of tomatoes and cucumbers in a large salad bowl, and add chopped red onion to taste. (Err on the side of caution as the salad can easily become too oniony.)
Drizzle over olive oil, sprinkle over lemon juice, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Serve cold with hummus and pitas.
