Tomato Salad, Ethiopian Style

MAKES: 4 servings

TIME: 15 minutes, plus time to chill

If you have time to chop tomatoes, you have time to make this salad, which also works as a relish to eat with sandwiches and salads.

The light, fresh-tasting, oil-free dressing features turmeric, which turns the salad a lovely sunset color. You can use almost any spice mix you like here instead.

3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

1/4 cup minced red onion

1 tablespoon minced jalapeГ±o chile, or more or less to taste

1 teaspoon ground turmeric (optional)

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

4 large tomatoes, cored and coarsely chopped

01 Put the lemon juice, onion, jalapeño, and turmeric, if you’re using it, into a medium serving bowl. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and stir to combine. Add the tomatoes and toss to coat.

02 Chill for up to 30 minutes, then taste and adjust the seasoning and serve.
