Cucumber Cumin Salad

When you’re in the mood for a very fresh, green salad full of flavor, cucumber cumin salad, with cucumbers, green onions, mint leaves and cumin, will hit the spot. This is also a very nice, light and pretty salad for serving guests or taking to a brunch.

cucumber cumin saladI prefer to use English cucumbers for this salad. I like their strong cucumber aroma and flavor. Plus, I like the slightly scalloped edges of the slices. I make this salad two ways: either slice and cube the cucumber pieces, or spiral the cucumber in your spiralizer to give the salad extra lift and a beautiful presentation.

This salad can be made ahead and popped into the refrigerator to eat the next day or made in the morning to serve in the evening. You can add or subtract from any ingredient amounts, or omit ingredients, based on your taste. Before serving the salad, add salt to taste, or suggest that guests add salt.

You can add coconut yogurt to the salad to make a nice Indian cucumber raita. Raita is eaten alongside spicy foods as a cooling side dish. I’ve included an optional coconut yogurt amount in the ingredients list. This salad, with or without the coconut yogurt, is also delicious served with Indian Samosa Pie or Spicy Potato Curry Dum Aloo. Complete the menu with this Homemade Vegan Naan.
