5-Minute Turkish Shepherd’s Salad

Makes: 3-4 servings
This Turkish shepherd’s salad requires just a few simple ingredients to produce a light and refreshing salad that is perfect as a starter, a dip, or a side dish. Toss all the ingredients together near serving time and prepare the amount enough for one meal as this salad is not the type that improves after refrigeration.

Turkish Shepherd's Salad

This Turkish Shepherd’s salad is bursting with Mediterranean flavors: Roma tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, onions, lemon, garlic, olive oil, and feta cheese (optional). This salad is similar to the Greek salad that we commonly know. Serve it with pitas or with grilled meats. It is best to make this salad right before serving time or prepare the ingredients ahead then just toss them together just before serving time. Shepherd’s salad does not sit well in the fridge – the cucumber becomes watery and the tomatoes lose its crunch and texture, so try to make only the amount you can consume in one meal.
