Cucumber and Onion Salad – My Summer Frequent
There isn’t much to say about Salads. Each one has his/her own way of presenting salad. My cucumber and onion salad is very simple. I give it a sharp touch with lime juice and balance this sourness with some sugar. The green chillies add a spicy tang.
This salad finds a place in my home more in the summer days, and I call it My Summer Frequent. This is how I make my khatta meetha cucumber onion salad.
Cucumber: 1 wash, peel off the skin and cut into thin long narrow pieces.
Onion: 1 cut into ring shape.
Mix cucumber, chillies and onion in a bowl. Mix it properly.
Now add salt (to taste) and squeeze the juice of a lemon into this mixture. To this add some sugar to balance the tangy taste. Mix it carefully so that all the ingredients blend properly. Keep it aside till the salt, sugar and lemon juice blend.
Ready to serve and taste.
