This is a very simple yet delicious side dish. It pairs well with any Mediterranean dish. When I make this, I typically put it on everything. It adds such a wonderful flavor to any dish or meal. Keep this in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 to 5 days.
3 small cucumbers – diced fine
2 tomatoes – seeds removed and diced fine
1/2 onion – diced fine
2 tsp dried parsley or 1/4 cup fresh (chopped)
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Zest of 1 lemon
1 tsp dried dill or 1 tbsp fresh (chopped)
Salt and pepper – to taste
2 to 3 tbsp olive oil
- Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and cover with a lid or plastic wrap. Place in the fridge for 1 hour or up to overnight. Stir before serving. Adjust seasonings to taste. Store covered in the fridge.
- You can add this to any Mediterranean dish or pasta. Cook up some pasta and toss in the Israeli salad for a delicious lunch or a meatless dinner.
- Add plain greek yogurt for a wonderful sauce to top any dish.
- Serve as a side by itself.
- Cook some rice or pasta and add some of the Israeli salad as well as some grilled chicken for a delicious dinner.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Let me tell you a little bit about me. I am a mom of two, a stepmom of 1, two wild and silly pups, and I have the best husband in the world. I also have a love of cooking and baking. I am always in the kitchen finding new recipes to try, recreating old family recipes, and reminiscing about the old ways. I am vintage at heart and love all things old and cast iron. I love spending time with the family and pups and just going where life takes us.
I created my blog a few years ago with my youtube channel because I thought that If I shared a recipe, then people just might like to see just how the recipe is put together. I share all of my family recipes along with today's recipes. Whether it is old-fashioned recipes, sourdough, einkorn, desserts, sheet pan meals, or even crockpot meals, they are all absolutely delicious.
I spend hours, if not days, creating and dabbling with recipes to make sure they are the best for you and your family. All of my recipes are family tested and family-approved before they are ever posted to my blog or youtube channel.
Every now and again I will share some behind-the-scenes fun and chaos of our creations and family adventures. I hope you all stick around and join us here at The Southern Rustic and see what we cook up in my kitchen. You can find all of my social media information in the Contact/Donate OR the Social Media Accounts tab on my home page. There I have listed my Instagram pages, YouTube channel, Email, and other information so you can easily find everything in one place.
I hope that you all have a wonderful, wonderful day and I will see you soon.
