  1. Place the tomatoes, cucumber and onions in a serving bowl.
  2. Mix the remaining ingredients, excluding the chives, to make a dressing and pour over the salad.
  3. Toss all the ingredients together and garnish with the chives.


There are several variations: some omit the yogurt and increase the amount of lemon juice; the chilli is optional and you can replace it and some of the tomatoes with sliced mild peppers. Also it is common to crumble some sirene or feta cheese over the top.
