Aleppo Pepper and Sumac

Middle Eastern (ish) Tomato Cucumber Salad
serves 4-6 as a side

1+1/2 to 2 lbs ripe tomatoes, seeded and chopped
2 cucumbers, seeded and chopped
2-5 large cloves garlic, minced (add gradually and taste!)
1+1/2 T lemon juice
1+1/2 T red wine vinegar
1 T olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp sumac
1/2 to 1 tsp Aleppo pepper
fresh ground black pepper

Be sure to get rid of the seeds in both the cucumber and the tomatoes when you chop them. Place the tomatoes and cucumbers in a large non-reactive bowl. To make the dressing, combine the remaining ingredients in a small bowl or mug, then taste and adjust spices as desired. Now pour the dressing on top of the tomatoes and cucumber, and mix well to distribute. Refrigerate for at least an hour, stirring every 20 minutes or so to redistribute the dressing.
