Indian Cucumber Salad

Indian Cucumber Salad

I love cucumber salad in virtually any form. This simple cucumber salad recipe comes from my friend Asma, an excellent Indian cook, and a joy to watch in the kitchen. Asma can make six dishes in the same time it takes lesser cooks to make two. She tosses things together with such aplomb, at makes my happy chef heart skip a beat. This is a perfect side dish on a warm day, and makes a soothing addition to a lunch or dinner that is full of spicy Indian heat.

Indian Cucumber Salad (makes four side servings, can easily be doubled)

  • 4 Persian cucumbers, finely chopped (do not peel)
  • ½ white onion, finely diced
  • ½ cup cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ – 1 teaspoon salt (to taste)
  • 1 cup full fat plain yogurt

In a medium-sized mixing bowl stir together all of the ingredients. Taste for salt. Adjust seasonings if necessary. Serve garnished with chopped cilantro.
