Classic Spicy Side Salad

24 Jul

This is a classic side salad. A refreshingly tangy salad of tomatoes, onions and cucumber straight from the garden with a hint of chilli and lemon which gives it the piquancy. Salads like this are found all around India, the mediteranean and middle east. It makes an excellent summer side salad and goes well with grilled meats and curries.

  • 3-4 tomatoes
  • 2 small white onions
  • 1 or 2 small cucumbers, peeled
  • lemon juice
  • salt & pepper
  • pinch of sugar
  • pinch of chilli flakes or chili powder
  • Optional herbs; flat leaf parsley, mint or coriander finely chopped.

Finely chop the onion, tomato and cucumber, add the citrus juice, season with salt, pepper, sugar and chilli to taste and give it a good mix. Serve immediately sprinkled with herbs.
