Make   -   (1-1/2 hrs - 20 min work)
  1. Chop all VEGETABLES / HERBS quite small. You can do this in a food processor if you are careful not to run it too long. I prefer to chop the Tomatoes and Herbs by hand for better control. Mix all together.
  2. Mix Seasoning items into the Salad.
  3. Mix Oil into the salad, then Lemon Juice and Vinegar.
  4. Chill for an hour or so before serving.
NOTES: Make   -   (20 min)
  1. Pepper Cubanelle:   These are non-hot thin wall peppers, and pretty much unavailable here in Southern California. I use non-hot Hungarian or Armenian / Turkish peppers instead. Italian peppers will work if that's what you can get.
  2. Cucumbers:   Use Persian or some other small diameter cucumber that doesn't need peeling or seeding (English, Mediterranean, European, Japanese, or Kirby if you can't get the others). If you have only the standard waxed green blimps, peel, seed and quarter them lengthwise before slicing.
  3. Chili Flake:   I use 1/2 t Korean flake, which is very available around here. It's fairly mild, so it doesn't make the dish at all hot. Adjust to your own taste and use whatever chili you like.
  4. Oil:   Oils used in Uzbekistan are Cottonseed, Peanut and (from Russian influence) Sunflower seed. I use Olive Oil anyway (pure, or even virgin), and so would they if they had it.
  5. U.S. measure: t=teaspoon, T=Tablespoon, c=cup, qt=quart, oz=ounce, #=pound, cl=clove in=inch, ar=as required tt=to taste
