How to Make Ali Baba Salad

Step-by-Step

  • 1Combine all dressing ingredients. Let sit for 10-15 minutes for dried herbs to reconstitute.
  • 2Prepare the salad ingredients and place in serving bowl.
  • 3Pour dressing over salad and toss to coat.
  • 4It's still good the following day, but the flavors are strong enough that a long marinating time isn't required.

    *Persian cucumbers are much smaller than the traditional ones. The skin is very tender so no need to peel or score and the seeds are much less prominent
