  • 4 roma tomatoes chopped
  • 1 Italian green pepper diced
  • 1 white onion diced
  • 2 Persian cucumbers diced
  • ¾ cup walnuts chopped
  • 1 cup parsley chopped
  • ¼ cup olive oil extra virgin
  • 4 tablespoon pomegranate molasses
  • 1 teaspoon sumac
  • ½ teaspoon salt


  • Place the chopped tomatoes, green Italian pepper, onion, cucumbers, walnuts and parsley in a large bowl and mix well.
  • Mix olive oil, pomegranate molasses, sumac and salt in a small bowl and pour it over the salad.
  • Mix well and cover the salad with a plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 30 minutes before serving.



  • Persian cucumbers have less seed than English cucumbers therefore they're perfect for this tomato salad. 
  • The tomatoes you're going to use for this recipe should be firm and plump. Soft tomatoes will release their juice easier. 
  • If pomegranate molasses is not available, a splash of balsamic vinegar would work, too. 
  • You can add more chopped walnuts to this tomato salad if you would like it to be more crunchy.
