syrian style salad

This simple salad is made [almost] with every lunch. It’s simple and quick to make. Without any dressing, it really relies on the rich Middle Eastern flavours found in the dishes served with this salad.

Serves: 4


1 medium tomato

1 Lebanese cucumber, peeled

1 medium carrot, peeled

1/2 cos lettuce, dark leaves removed

1/2 green capsicum

a dash of olive oil

a pinch of salt

a pinch of mint flakes


Start by cutting up the tomato into chunks. I like small ones, you can do them as big as you want.

Add the tomato into a serving bowl.

Dice the cucumber and capsicum and add into the bowl.

Grate the carrot and add it into the bowl

Roughly dice the lettuce leaves and add into the bowl.

Drizzle with olive oil and a pinch of salt.

Add in the dried mint and toss. Serve.
