This refreshing salad recipe is from Prez’s father, who hails from the island of Cyprus:

1 large, seedless cucumber
3 fresh tomatoes
1 bunch parsley
1/2 a red onion, sliced
1 lemon, juiced
1/4 c. olive oil
salt to taste
Soak the red onion slices in a small bowl of filtered water and set aside. Clean and chop tomatoes and cucumber; place into a serving bowl. Wash and dry then roughly chop parsley. Drain onion and add to salad along with parsley. In a small bowl, beat together lemon juice, olive oil and salt then pour over salad. Serve with pita bread, olives and haloumi cheese.
