Salatat Khiyar (Algerian Cucumber Salad)
from Missy Wombat

I'm not usually a cucumber person but I really like this recipe.


  • 1 large cucumber, peeled,halved lengthwise,seeded,thinly sliced
  • 1/2 green capsicum, cored,seeded and cut in half lengthwise
  • 1/3 cup pitted and coarsely chopped green olives
  • 4 large fresh mint leaves, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh coriander leaves (cilantro)
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons white wine vinegar
  • salt & freshly ground black pepper

Toss the cucumber in a salad bowl with the green pepper, olives, and mint.

Add the coriander, paprika, olive oil, and vinegar, season with salt and pepper,

toss again, and serve.
