"Turkish" Salad

This isn’t much of a recipe, but a good combination of flavors, especially when it’s warm and there are good tomatoes to be had. Try it scooped up with soft warm pita bread
Tomatoes, chopped
Onions, chopped
Cucumbers, peeled, seeded & chopped
Parsley, chopped
Olive Oil
Fresh lemon juice
Feta cheese, cubed or crumbled (optional)
Mix together the tomatoes, onions and cucumbers in whatever proportion you like. Toss vegetables with the parsley, then drizzle on some olive oil. Squeeze a lemon, and add some of the juice, add a tiny dash of salt, stir it all together.
Have a taste – need more of something? Add a bit of that something (keeping in mind that if you’re going to add feta cheese that feta is quite salty).
Top with feta cheese. If you like olives and have some good ones on hand, you might want to throw a few of those in as well.
