Cucumber and tomato salad

Inspired by the food of Tel Aviv, this crunchy chopped salad comes dressed with a creamy tahini sauce and is a fresh accompaniment to kebabs

  • Serves: 2 persons



  1. Step 1

    Drain the diced tomatoes in a sieve or colander, then combine with all the other salad ingredients in a mixing bowl with some sea salt and black pepper to taste.
  2. Step 2

    To make your own tahini sauce, put the tahini in a mixing bowl and whisk in 200ml cold water, a third at a time. When it has a smooth, creamy consistency, add the lemon juice, garlic and ¼ tsp of fine sea salt. (The sauce can be stored in the fridge, but starts to lose depth of flavour after a day.) Pile the salad into a bowl and serve with the tahini sauce drizzled on top.
