Afghan Tomato, Cucumber and Onion Salad (Salata)

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by UmmBinat

"Salata is always light and crunchy, making it a perfect counterpoint to Afghan cuisine’s heavier dishes. Some Afghan cooks consider it a point of pride when the diced vegetables are small and uniform in size. The result reminds a little of a colorful bowl of confetti. For those in Afghanistan who can afford fresh vegetables, salata is a staple on the Afghan table. If you can’t get your hands on any decent tomatoes, hang onto the recipe until you can."

This recipe will only be as successful as the quality ingredients used. Colorful and delicious salad that included a variety of heirloom tomatoes. Goes with so many different main dishes. Will make again soon before the heirloom tomatoes are merely a distant memory. Reviewed for Ramadan Tag.
