Summer is here and with it comes one of my favorite ways to cook- grilling. If you’re willing to try a fantastic alternative to the burger, I highly recommend this recipe which uses traditional Middle Eastern flavors.

Traditionally the Mediterranean salad is made of finely chopped tomatoes, cucumbers, onion, mint and parsley – and the finer the chopping, the better the salad.
Our updated version is colorful and wonderfully crunchy, thanks to the radishes and carrots.
Feel free to add other vegetables or omit any, according to your taste.
1 medium tomato (firm)
1 large cucumber
2-3 small radishes
1/2 medium red onion
1 carrot, peeled
1/2 red pepper, cleaned
1 handful flat leaf parsley, chopped
1 handful mint leaves, chopped
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Finely chop all of the vegetables and combine in a bowl. Squeeze the lemon juice over the salad add the olive oil, the salt and pepper, toss and serve.
