Instructions
  1. Thoroughly rinse the tomatoes and cucumbers and any fresh herbs (if using). Set aside in a bowl.
  2. Finely dice the red onion, add it to a large salad or mixing bowl.
  3. Cut the tomatoes in half. If not using grape or cherry tomatoes, just cut your regular tomatoes into 1-inch cubes. Add to the large salad bowl along with the onions.
  4. Using a vegetable peeler, peel the cucumber to remove the dark-green skin. Chop cucumbers into 1-inch cubes, and add to your salad bowl.
  5. Season with the oregano, zaatar, sumac (optional) and salt (to taste).
  6. Drizzle the lemon juice over the salad, and mix. Make sure to remove any seeds before pouring.
  7. Enjoy fresh! Refrigerate any leftovers.
