Tuesday's Cupboard—Shirazi Salad

A recipe for using summer veggies when they are plentiful & fresh

Enjoy this fantastic & healthy salad by Bay Area chef, Samin Nosrat!

My substitutions:

•  1/2 red onion for the spring onion
•  Omitted the 6 small red tomatoes & used 2 pints of red & yellow cherry tomatoes instead
•  Instead of 1 lb. of cucumber, I used one Japanese cucumber
•  Flavored olive oils (rosemary & garlic) instead of plain olive oil
•  I mixed the herbs into the veggies, then tweaked the flavors with white wine vinegar & freshly ground black pepper & pink finishing salt
•  I served this salad over a handful of fresh spring greens & topped it with crumbled feta cheese
