Absolutely delicious and so easy. We served with marinated chicken from the bbq and Greek flatbreads.

Great salad and you can add pretty much anything to it whatever you have available.

A fantastic go-to green salad that can be altered depending on what's in the fridge. We had no cucumber or radishes so used celery instead/substituted red onion for spring onions/ replaced parsley with fresh coriander. With some pitta and baked feta this made a great lunch.

Followed the recipe exactly except for peeling and de-seeding the cucumber. The sumac is wonderful and went so well with the lavender lamb (also on this site). ]
