TOMATO-CUCUMBER SALAD WITH WALNUTS

GEORGIAN SALAD

A standard salad served in any Georgian restaurant as appetizer. The main specialty of this salad is the sauce made with walnuts. Grown in Georgia fresh cucumbers, ripe and juicy red tomatoes, and red onions are delicious by itself, but salad dressing make it even more special.  Salad sauce cooking style varies from place to place. Some make it creamy by blending nuts in food processor, but some grinding in a pestle. I do choose second option, since I love to feel small pieces of nuts.
