Shepherd’s salad


This a recipe typical from Turkey, it’s a really nice recipe for those of you bringing a tupperware to your work, and it’s also great for summer.


  • 1 cucumber
  • 2 tomates
  • 1 spring onion
  • 1 lemon
  • A bunch of parsley
  • Olive oil

Start rolling a bunch of parsley like you were rolling a cigar, and then chop it. Peel the cucumber but maintain a bit of the skin which will bring a more colorful salad. As we need to cut the cucumber in cubes, first we will cut onto slices, then pile up slices and cut onto stripes, then cut the stripes to form cubes. Chop a spring onion. Cut 2 tomatoes on cubes, first cut in half, cut in 4 the part with the peduncle, remove the peduncle and try to cut in cubes; cut the other part onto stripes turn 90 degrees and cut again onto stripe so you will have cubes.

Add the tomatoes, spring onion and cucumber on a bowl and add the chopped parsley. Add salt, the juice of one lemon and olive oil. Give it a good mix, and let rest for some time.
