Moroccan Cucumber and Tomato Salad

tomato and cucumber salad

As quick and simple as this recipe may be, it is still a staple of Moroccan cuisine. The feggous (cucumber) and tomato salad can be the basis to create different salads or can be eaten as is with bread or another dish.

I decided to take this recipe from La Maison Arabe’s Moroccan Recipes book. However, I didn’t follow every step of the recipe. For instance, I did not seed the tomatoes since I felt it would make the salad juicier. This is all a matter of preference of course.

Moroccan Cucumber and Tomato Salad


  • 1 cucumber
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1 onion
  • 2 tbsp. of fresh chopped parsley
  • 2 tbsp. of freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp. of olive oil
  • salt and pepper for taste


  1. Finely chop cucumber, onion and tomatoes. You can seed the tomato if you like. I prefer to not seed it since the tomato juice contributes greatly to the overall taste.
  2. Mix the cucumber, tomatoes, and onion.
  3. Add the lemon juice, salt, olive oil, and pepper.
  4. Garnish with fresh parsley and serve.
