From the Vitality Food Feature ‘The Tart Taste of Sumac‘.

This salad is best eaten right away and, although popular as a side salad, it works well as a meal on its own.
(Serves 4 to 6)


  • 2 medium cucumbers (about 6 to 7 inches long), quartered lengthwise and thinly sliced
  • 1 large tomato, quartered and sliced to 1/4 inch thickness
  • 1 medium sweet onion, cut in half and very thinly sliced
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp dried sumac fruit
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

1) Place cucumber, tomato and onion in a salad bowl and combine.

2) Stir in remaining ingredients and serve.
