Tomato and Sumac Salad

Sumac is a middle-eastern spice that I was introduced to during a visit to Amman, Jordan. It adds a nice lemon-like tang to dishes and pairs well with tomatoes. I like to make this quick salad during the summer when tomatoes are the tastiest.

Ingredients

ALL MEASUREMENTS ARE APPROXIMATE
(because it doesn’t matter that much)

  • 2 ripe tomatoes, cut into 1/2 inch dice
  • 1-2 scallions, sliced thin (use as much to taste)
  • 1/2 to 1 t. sumac, to taste (start with a sprinkling, then add from there)
  • 1 to 2 fresh mint, chopped (optional)
  • about 1 T. good olive oil
  • sea salt to taste
  • fresh ground black pepper to taste

Instructions

Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Give it a taste and adjust the seasonings and ingredients to your liking. Make it at least 1/2 hour ahead to allow the flavors to mingle. Serve chilled or at room temperature. Double the recipe if you need more.
