Moroccan Tomato and Cucumber Salad

This salad is the most common and basic salad in Moroccan cuisine.

The simplicity of the ingredients allows the salad to go with many dishes.在摩洛哥,it is usually served as a side salad next to tagines or grilled foods.

It's very refreshing and healthy,perfect for sunny days!!

我喜欢在沙拉里加一茶匙蜂蜜,因为我用的西红柿不够甜。In Morocco tomatoes have a natural sweet and pungent taste,不幸的是,伦敦的情况并不总是这样!!


Serves 4


  • 1 large onion finely chopped (200 gr)
  • 6 medium sized tomatoes (400 gr),seeded and chopped in 1/2 cm cubes
  • 1 medium sized cucumber (400 gr),seeded and chopped in 1/2 cm cubes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste

• Adding a bit of honey to the salad balances the acidity and gives a very light and sweet taste to the salad.
