Breakfast, Salads, Sides

Breakfast Salad

Breakfast Salad is what I call uncooked veggies at breakfast. I usually make this if I’m making Menemen, or some other spicy dish. Be advised that this is one of those recipes where the quality of ingredients matter, so if you happen to have flavorful tomatoes and cucumbers on hand, this will be fantastic.


  • Fresh Tomatoes (the tastiest you can find) cut into bite-size wedges
  • English Cucumber/Persian Cucumbers half peeled and sliced
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Lemon Juice (optional)


1. Arrange the Tomatoes and Cucumbers on a plate, or in a bowl. Sprinkle with Salt. Drizzle with Olive Oil. Top with a small squeeze of Lemon, if you’re using it.

2. Enjoy.

What else can I eat with this?
This goes great with Menemen, or any other spicy dish.  Feta cheese and olives go well with breakfast salad. But really, what do tomatoes and cucumbers NOT go well with?
