2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 30 mL
2 tsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed 1/4 lemon
1/2 tsp sumac [optional] 1 g

Before you start

If you cannot find « sumac » at your grocery store, you may substitute it by some lemon juice.


  1. Coarsely chop the onion and soak it in water with a few drops of vinegar for about ½ h. You can also leave it overnight in the refrigerator. This makes the raw onion easier to digest and crispier.
  2. Prepare the vegetables. Cut the cucumbers in half lengthwise and use a spoon to scrape out the seeds. Slice them coarsely, then sprinkle with salt to let excess and possibly bitter liquids drain off. Coarsely dice the tomatoes. Chop the parsley and mint leaves. Wash the romaine lettuce, spin-dry, then tear the leaves into bite-size pieces. Place all the vegetables in a salad bowl or serving plate.
  3. Mince the garlic and put it into a small bowl. Add the oil, lemon juice, minced chili pepper, and sumac (optional). Add salt and pepper. Whisk using a fork until the vinaigrette is emulsified. Adjust the seasoning. Pour over the vegetables and toss well. Let stand 15 min.
  4. When ready to serve, grill the tortillas in a toaster, break into pieces then add them to the salad. Serve.
