Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    1 medium cucumber (peeled)
    1 green or yellow bell pepper
    3 medium tomatoes
    3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    2 tbsp lemon juice
    1 tsp salt
    1 tsp fresh ground pepper

Tips

Garnish with parsley or green onions.


Directions

Chop all vegetables into small cubes (you can chop them larger if you like). Add olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Mix. Enjoy!
Note: Do not make in a metal bowl as the acid from the tomatoes and lemon juice will begin to react.
Note: The longer it sits, the more liquidy it will get.

    In Israel, they often put tons of parsley in this to make it even more fresh tasting. It is a side dish to everything, even at breakfast! - 5/1/09

    Remove the seeds from the cucumber and tomatoes to make it less runny. Add the lemon or lime juice until ready to eat, which will make veggies less soggy. This all just helps a little. Tina - 7/29/08

    This is very yummy! I used hot banana peppers instead of bell peppers and gave it a little kick. All the veggies I used were straight from my garden. - 7/29/08
