Cucumber and tomato salad

"Shirazi" a Persian version of the cucumber and tomato salad. This is a classic summer salad served with kabob that is very easy to prepare. Just lots of slicing and dicing. First, the cucumbers, then the tomatoes, red onion, cilantro and green onions. I squeezed the lemons, drizzled the olive oil (that part I forgot to record). Then mixed and seasoned with salt and pepper.
