A refreshing salad for the summer, this salad was frequently made by my mother when I was growing up since fresh tomatoes were abundant. My mom usually used shallots in the salad, but since I had only green onions on hand, I used them up. The salad is succulent and delicious.
4 medium firm tomatoes 4 green onions (or 1 small shallot) ¼ cup fresh mint (chopped) ½ tsp sumac ½ tsp salt 2 tbsp olive oil Juice of ½ lemon
Dice the tomatoes and slice the green onions/shallots. Place in a bowl and add mint, sumac, salt, olive oil and lemon juice. Toss and serve.
