Turkish Vegetable Salad

This is a couscous alternative to a tossed salad. It contains lots of fresh veggies and spices that will fire up the palette.
For US to UK equivalents see this rough guide

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 3 medium tomatoes, peeled
  • 1/2 cucumber peeled
  • 1 green or red pepper
  • 1 onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 teaspoon parsley, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 4 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon parika


Remove seeds from tomatoes, cucumber, and green peppers. Chop all vegetables into very small pieces.

Combine all ingredients and mix well. Serve immediately, or chill for 1-3 hours in the refrigerator.

Chilling the salad will produce a more full flavor.

As with all recipes which involve cooking and baking a sensible approach must be taken especially when dealing with warm or hot (temperature) ingredients. If you are unable to take due care, please do not attempt to make any of these recipes. All recipes are tried at your own risk.
