One of my favorite dishes to eat when I’m looking for something fresh is this Middle Eastern Tomato Cucumber Salad. I love to have it with hummus, pita, and chicken.
Now that it is summer, sometimes you just want a dish that is light and refreshing. This is just the thing. No need for the stove or oven. All you have to do is cut up the vegetables and it’s ready to serve!
Also, there is so much flavor packed into this salad. The mint, parsley, and lemon add freshness to the salad, while the cucumber adds a cool crunch.
If you want to serve this with some bread, you can find pita or naan at most grocery stores. However, if you want to try something different, find a local Middle Eastern grocery store and see if they have fresh bread or pita. There is a store near me that has the best pillow-soft bread and I love to tear off a piece, spread it with hummus, and top it with this salad.
If you’re serving this for lunch, try it inside a pita with hummus and chicken or falafel. For dinner, the salad makes a great side dish for chicken, lamb, or fish. On this occasion, I served the salad with hummus, harissa chicken, and roti.
