My aunt Ashley, who lives in Israel, taught me this recipe a few years ago when she came for a visit. Just finely dice some tomatoes, red onions, cucumbers, and parsley and toss with a bit of olive oil, salt, and black pepper.

I told you it was easy!

This would be lovely addition to a gyro or pita sandwich. Feel free to get creative!

That parsley in the picture is from my garden. Aren’t you impressed? Don’t you know how difficult it is to grow parsley? Alright, only kidding. I’m also growing tomatoes, cucumbers, and onions, but the Oregon weather is not cooperating this year so absolutely nothing is ripe… except zucchini. SO MUCH ZUCCHINI.

Okay, I kind of forgot where I was going with that whole story. Uh, here’s another picture of the Jerusalem Salad.

Make it.

  1. I made this, and it needed a little something more. I added red wine vinegar in an amount equal to the olive oil. Also, I add a little Mrs. Dash to everything with vegetables. I will make this again using 3/4 cup parsley rather than the one cup in the recipe. This salad states even better the next day.
