Turkish inspired salad

Our friends from Turkey, Turkan, Ozlem and Muge taught us how to prepare a delicious and super healthy salad made of fresh cilantro and tomatoes. It is so simple to prepare and so refreshing and tasteful.

  • 4 large or medium tomatoes
  • half a bunch of fresh cilantro (you can also use parsley if you prefer)
  • 2 table spoons of extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 lemons (you are going to need 2 table spoons of fresh squeezed lemon juice)
  • a pinch of salt

Wash the tomatoes, dry off them on a paper towel and cut the tomatoes in small cubes. Put them on a large bowl.

Wash the cilantro, clean it from any dry leaves, cut the cilantro long stem and dry it on a paper towel.
Cut the cleaned cilantro into small pieces. Add them to the large bowl.

Make a dressing with olive oil, fresh lemon juice and salt. Mix it all together. Before serving the salad add this dressing to the tomatoes and cilantro. Mix gently and enjoy!
