Anna writes, "This is the most famous salad, that probably every Russian family eats in the summer time. In Russia we had cucumbers or tomatoes only in summer months, and if you don’t see any of these vegetables for months and months, you develop very serious craving for them. I remember growing up in Russia in 70s and 80s, and all my winter dreams had cucumbers and tomatoes in them!
For this salad slice:
► one big tomato
► medium cucumber
► half of an onion.
► add little chunks of yellow bell pepper (optional)
► juice of half a lime as salad dressing
► salt and pepper to taste.
I still remember my Dad feeding me this salad, when you was about 3-4 year old. And, whenever I came to see friends and stayed over for dinner, they would have absolutely identical salad at their table!"
I thank Anna for sharing her recipe summer salad - we still have a few weeks to enjoy it. She promises that there are more to come.
