Cucumber and Tomato Salad

Photographer: Greg DuPree,

In terms of taste, it is much crunchier than the cucumber found in France.

Here, I offer you a salad that can be found on all Moroccan tables: a tomato and cucumber salad … commonly called Chlada! : p

Perfect to accompany your summer grills!


  • 2 – 3 tomatoes

  • 1 cucumber

  • 1 shallot

  • 1 handful of flat-leaf parsley

  • Salt pepper

  • 1 tsp of alcohol vinegar

  • 2 tsp olive oil


Wash the cucumber, tomatoes and shallot.

Cutting cucumber also tomatoes to small cubes.

You can peel the tomatoes if you prefer… I prefer them with the skin on!

Peeled shallot & finely chop it.

Place the tomatoes, cucumber and shallot in a bowl.

Add the alcohol vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper.

Add the chopped parsley and mix.

Keep cool until ready to serve.

Salad is even better when it’s fresh.

Enjoy your lunch !
