Ingredients

  • 2 large cucumbers
  • 1 large tomato
  • 1/4 medium onion
  • 1 Tablespoon sumac
  • Salt
  • Olive oil

Directions

Peel the cucumbers in stripes. Slice the cucumbers in half, length-wise. Slice these halves into semi-circles, each no more than 1-2 mm thick. Put the cucumbers in the salad bowl.

Chop the tomato into salad-size pieces — not too large and not too small. Add to the cucumber.

Slice the onion into long pieces and add to the tomato and cucumber.

Drizzle about 1 tablespoon of olive oil over the salad and add the sumac and salt to taste. Mix well. Enjoy.
