Shirazi Salad

6 large servings and only 52 calories!


2 large tomatoes, diced
1 English cucumber, peeled and diced (or 2 medium cucumbers)
1/2 large red onion, diced (less if you are not an onion lover)
1 T lemon juice
1 T olive oil
1 T fresh mint leaves, chopped
1 T fresh cilantro leaves (or parsley), chopped
a bit of fresh ground black pepper


Prepare the vegetables and place in a large bowl, add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. I do not use salt when I cook, but if you prefer salt, a little bit of sea salt would be just fine.
