Salaata (Afghan Salad)

Recipe from: Sharon123
Servings: 4

A popular salad in Afghanistan, it's made up of tomatoes, onion, cucumbers, radishes, lemon, cilantro and salt. I like to add just a little drizzle of honey in the dressing.From Afghan cooking.

2 whole tomatoes, chopped
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
1 bunch cilantro, washed, chopped, about ½ to ¾ cup
1 lemon, juice of
drizzle honey, optional
1 or 2 medium cucumbers
2 or 3 radishes
salt

Chop tomatoes, onion, and cilantro. Mix these together in a bowl. Juice one lemon and pour the juice over the top of the tomato, onion, and cilantro. Add honey now if using. You can also add chopped cucumbers, as well as radishes. Sprinkle with salt (to taste) a good pinch and toss the salad.

Cover and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes to allow all the juices to mix together.
