Cucumber and Tomato Salad
From: Tish

A Turkish salad, similar to a salad my grandma used to make!


  • 1 large tomato
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill
  • salt
  • 2 green chili peppers, chopped


  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • oil
  • lemon

Cut tomatoes into 10 wedges.

Pare the cucumber; cut it in half lengthwise& then in thin slices.

Cut onion in half lengthwise& then slice paper thin.

Put the onion slices into a bowl, sprinkle with salt& squeeze in the palm of a hand.

Rinse& pat dry.

On a platter, arrange in succession rows of tomatoes, cucumber slices& onion pieces.

Sprinkle with the dill, salt& chili pepper.

Mix vinegar& dressing& pour over the salad enough to moisten it well.
