Finely chop the cucumber, tomatoes and onions. All three ingredients should be chopped in tiny (about 0.5cm/0.2″) cubes.
You can see how to finely chop onions in my video tutorial.
Chop the cucumber in half. This will make the next steps easier. Cut one half cucumber in thin (about 0.5cm/0.2″) lengthwise slices. Divide the slices in two cucumber halves and place them both cut side on the chopping board. Slice them again, so that you have long, thin ‘sticks’. Hold them together with one hand, while you chop the cucumber widthwise, as you normally would. Now you have very fine cubes. Repeat this with the other half.
Cut the tomatoes in thin slices, aiming for the same size as the cucumber. Remove the seeds and juices. Then chop them into fine cubes.
Season with abghooreh/verjuice or lemon juice, dried mint and salt. Enjoy on its own as a healthy salad or as a refreshing side dish!
