Tomato Salad (Domates Salatası)

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.
