Excellent and refreshing salad, and authentic too. I spent a month in Ethiopia in 2009, and their salads tend to have sharp, sour flavours. I made half a batch, but the full amount of dressing so it's ready for the repeat salad I will make tomorrow. :) Used red onion, balsamic vinegar and an anaheim chilli. Thanks so much for posting.

We love this salad and it's a great compliment to spicy mains. I do kick it up a little by using two Serrano chili peppers and some paprika, and I double the dressing because it's that tasty.

REALLY good salad to pair with a spicy entree. I thought it could've called for a bit more vinegar to give it a stronger taste. I would definitely make this again!

I liked this recipe & think it will be perfect with summer's fresh tomatoes. The dressing is light & with a slight heat. Very good! Made for ZWT7.

For such a deceptively simple recipe this certainly has loads of great flavor! I meant to marinate it for a while, but in the end ran out of time and got it mixed together minutes before serving dinner. No matter--the flavors were terrific and the vinegar worked its magic on the raw onion, making it approachable for people like me who can't normally handle raw onion. I can't wait to make this again as the tomato season comes into full swing this summer. For me the lemon set this apart from other similar recipes, and I can't wait to try it with a pepper (skipped it this time for the benefit of little ones). Thanks for posting, Dreamer! Made for ZWT 7, for the Vivacious Violets.

This salad was delicious, a nice twist on the traditional cucumber salad. I added a bit more lemon & red wine vinegar and let it marinate for a couple of hours--great flavor. I may try it with balsamic next time just to see how it tastes. Thank you so much for posting!

The hot pepper adds a nice kick and sets this cucumber and tomato salad apart from others of its kind.
I really appreciated that this salad was quick, easy and healthy. Made as written. Thanks for the post.
