This is the classic Turkish ‘garden’ salad that you find in restaurants and homes all around the country. It’s a bit like the Lebanese salad fattouche, using commonly available ingredients that many people have growing in their gardens.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 long yellow pepper
1 long cucumber
2 long green chillies, seeded and shredded
2 vine-ripened tomatoes, skinned and cut into large dice
1 small purple onion, peeled and cut into large dice
6 radishes, sliced
1 cup flat-leaf parsley leaves
2 tablespoons dill, chopped
1 baby cos lettuce, shredded
1/2 lemon, juiced
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper

Method

  1. Quarter the pepper lengthwise, scraping out the seeds and removing the membrane, then slice. Quarter the cucumber lengthwise, then scoop out the seeds and slice. Toss all the ingredients in a large serving bowl and taste and adjust the seasoning.
