Easy Salsa/Relish Recipe - Middle Eastern/ East Indian Salad

This isn't exactly a salad, it's more of a salsa/relish - but is sometimes referred to as Middle Eastern or East Indian salad. It's very easy to make, refreshing, and it works great as a garnish for curries, soups, and stews. The salt and parsley/cilantro enhances the flavour of tomatoes and onion.

  • 1 small, finely diced tomato
  • 1 small, finely diced onion
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped parsley/cilantro
  • 2 tbsp finely minced cucumber, skin on for color (unless you're using waxed cucumbers) [optional]
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Crushed red chili flake or ground red pepper or paprika [optional]

  • Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl and let sit for a few minutes. The salt and pepper will bring out the flavour essence of the tomato and create an addictive sauce. Let the salsa sit for a few minutes, chilled, before serving.
  • As a variation, I sometimes liked to add a 1/2 tsp (or less) of finely ground cumin.

Use as a garnish in curries, soups, and stews, or add chunks of avocado and slivers of red onion and serve with nachos or "scoops" corn chips.
