Shepherd's Salad

Shepherd's Salad

This is another recipe that we made at one of the Turkish cooking classes that I attended. It's light and healthy, and frugal when you find the cucumbers and green peppers on sale (like they are at Rouse's right now). It would also be great with some feta cheese thrown in.

-2 cucumbers, peeled, seeded and chopped
-2 green peppers, chopped
-6 roma tomatoes, seeded and chopped
-1/2 red onion, chopped
-1/2 bunch of parsley, chopped
-juice of 1 lemon
-salt and pepper
-olive oil (I used 1/4 cup, because I always look for ways to lighten dishes up, but more traditionally they would use at least 1/2 cup)

Combine cucumbers, green peppers, tomatoes, red onion, and parsley in serving bowl. Whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Pour lemon/ olive oil mixture over veggies and toss to combine.
