Known as shirazi salad, this refreshing combination calls for Persian cucumbers, which are small, crunchy and sweet. You may substitute small pickling cucumbers; just peel them first. For even more flavor, add a few tablespoons of chopped mint and scallions to the salad and some extra squeezes of lemon juice to the dressing.
