Albanian Tomato Cucumber Salad


This traditional Albanian tomato cucumber salad is served throughout Albania. It is often served as first course. Typically this salad has equal proportions of tomato and cucumber. The rest of the ingredients are stictly added based on personal preference. I got this recipe from some missionaries that have lived in Albania for a long time. They made a cookbook with other missionaries called “From bugs to beans.”
