"Sallatë me kastravec" means salad with cucumber

Ingredients1/2 head of iceberg lettuce, shredded
1 medium cucumber, peeled and chopped thinly
1/2 white onion (or 3 scallions), chopped
about 4 tbsp olive oil
about 4 tbsp balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper to taste

1. Toss all ingredients together.

2. Enjoy!

Makes about 4 side servings (I eat a mixing bowl full at a time)

Pronunciation: salawt meh kastravets

Fun fact: Salads of all kinds are extremely popular in Kosovo. The Albanian's mom has been making this one for his family meals since he was small.

Serving tip: It goes a bit soggy if you don't eat it right away, at which point it makes for a great sandwich topping.
