I really enjoyed this salad! It was my first time making an Israeli salad, and since I had some mint to use up, this was perfect! I used about equal parts of tomato and cucumber since I didn't have 4 cucumbers. I thought 2 cucumbers was a good ratio. I also used half the black pepper (personal preference) and 1.5 tsp salt instead of 1 tbsp (that seemed like a lot!). It was plenty salty with the reduced salt. I also don't think 1/2 cup of oil is necessary. Start with 1/4 cup and decide if you'd like more. This salad creates a lot of liquid after it sits for a while. I loved the hint of lemon and the parsley/mint combination. I'll be making this one again! With the tweaks I made, it's def a 5 star recipe. Read More

Refreshing and light. Only used 2 cucumbers, 1/4 cup of olive oil and 3 tbsp of lemon juice. Otherwise, no changes. Just a note, make sure to whisk the the lemon juice and olive oil together for a minute or two before pouring on salad. Read More

Like a couple other reviewers, I decreased the salt to 1 teaspoon since I only used two cucumbers and that was plenty for my taste. I did not use garlic or onion since my guests do not eat either (but I love both). I also added an avocado sliced which was a nice addition to make up for not using the onion. And also cut the oil to 1/4 cu as well. I will make this again with all the ingredients. Thanks for this tasty recipe! Read More

I made this recipe just how it said but the only thing I changed was the parsley. I used parsley flakes in place of fresh leaf parsley. Once the lemon (I used 1 1/2 lemons) incorporates with the tomato and cucumber juices it really makes a difference. In my experience with cold salads they all taste so much more amazing each day afterward because it has time to suck up all the juices and marinate within itself. yum! Definitely recommend this as a healthy meal alone for those watching their weight or as a perfect summer side dish with some Swai fish fillets broiled or grilled in a lemon pepper marinade. Read More

Good salad. I'm not familiar with Israeli salad but a ratio of one English cucumber to one Roma tomato would I think be a cucumber salad =)... I scaled the recipe to two servings and used nearly equal amounts of English cuke and halved grape tomatoes (all I had). Nice light summertime salad. Read More

I have no idea how anyone could call this flavorless. It was delicious and will be a regular in our meal list. Read More
