Israeli Tomato & Cucumber Salad

By Andrew Zimmern

Israeli salad is a simple, healthy mixture of chopped fresh vegetables tossed with aromatic herbs, lemon juice and olive oil. In Israel and across the Middle East, every household has their own version. Don’t feel obligated to stick to this recipe, there are very few rules. Diced carrots, bell peppers, hot chiles, crumbled feta, garbanzo beans, olives, nuts and seeds are all lovely additions. Serve it with grilled meats and fish, on top of rice dishes, for breakfast with eggs, or with warm pita and hummus. Trust me, you’ll find a hundred uses for it in your home.
