Middle Eastern Cucumber Salad is one of the easiest and delicious no-cook meals for the dog days of summer. It is also a great way to use all the cucumbers and tomatoes that are in season right now. Or you could always use them in Peruvian Style Ceviche, Mizeria-Polish Cucumber Salad or Central Mexican Style Guacamole. But if you’re looking for something new and interesting for lunch or dinner, this is your meal!
I love middle eastern food. I lived in the middle east for awhile and my brother in law is from the middle east, so this salad is a riff on salads I had in my travels and also ones my brother in law’s mother has made. This salad is refreshing and tastes great with shallot yogurt sauce and some naan or pita bread.
Middle Eastern Cucumber Salad
2-3 large Tomatoes, diced
4-6 medium sized Cucumbers, diced
1 medium Onion, diced
1 bunch of fresh Parsley, chopped
2 Tbls Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper to taste
Mix everything together and serve with shallot yogurt sauce and naan, pita bread or flatbread. Enjoy!
It’s as easy as that! Pair it with Shallot Yogurt Sauce, which is just as easy!
Note: You are looking for a pretty even ratio of tomatoes and cucumbers, so the amount of tomatoes and cucumbers may vary. The amounts I state here are a rough guide.
