This salad comes together quickly and makes a delicious side. If you’re looking to make it a little more hearty, add some crumbled feta- if you do you should omit the salt until after you’ve tasted it with the cheese as feta is quite salty.
Makes: about 4 side servings
Time: less than 10 minutes
You will need:
- 1 long English cucumber
- 2 cups cherry tomatoes
- 1 large clove of fresh garlic
- juice of 1 fresh lemon
- 1 tbsp fresh chopped dill (add more if desired)
- several grinds of fresh black pepper
- salt to taste (about 1/4 tsp)
Halve the cucumber and thinly slice into half moons and put in a medium sized bowl. Quarter cherry tomatoes and add to cucumbers. Mince or press garlic and add to the cucumber and tomato. Chop dill and add to the vegetables. Add the juice of one fresh lemon and several grinds of fresh pepper and salt. Stir together. This salad can be eaten immediately, but is best if left to sit at least half an hour before serving in order to let the flavours marry.
