Persian Chopped Salad

As a chopped salad aficionado I have to say this one is my favorite by far. The sweet and tangy dressing with the feta and mint are perfection. Salad Shirazi is the most well known form of cucumber salad in Persian cooking but this one is well worth trying out as well. 

1/2 small red onion, sliced
5 small Persian cucumbers, chopped
5 oz. feta cheese, crumbled
1/4 c. parsley, chopped
2 Tbsp. fresh mint, chopped
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. apple cider vinegar
1 tsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. sugar
1/8 tsp. salt or more to taste
heavy dash white pepper

Whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, lemon juice, sugar, salt, and pepper until the sugar is dissolved. 

Toss the dressing with the onion, cucumber, feta, parsley, and mint. Serve immediately. 

If you want to prep this in advance whisk together the dressing and chop the vegetables and store separately. Just before serving whisk the dressing and toss with the vegetables and cheese.
