The classic Israeli salad is cucumbers and tomatoes finely chopped, mixed with olive oil, lemon, salt and pepper. Here I stick more or less stick with the classic recipe with a few small additions.


1 tomato, chopped
1 cucmber, chopped (the smaller kerbie cucumbers work better)
1 tbsp onion, chopped
1 tbsp pickled lemon, cut into small pieces (if your supermarket doesn’tcarry these you can find them in a middle-eastern market, they are also known as lemon baladi.)
1 tbsp finely chopped chili pepper (optional)
olive oil
salt and pepper.

Place in a slad bowl, serve with a middle-eastern meal such as majadera.

Note: The addition of the pickled lemon allows you to remove the tomato if you need to.
