1. Substitute 2 English cucumbers if you can’t find the smaller Persian, just use seedless cucumbers. Feel free to peel the cucumber, but the skin is so thin on the Persian I do not.
2. Substitute 1 tablespoon dried mint
3. Be sure to keep the dice uniform in size, for visual and textural purposes.
4. The longer the salad marinates the better as the flavors develop. Serve alongside any grilled meat or on its own.
