Making salads with cucumber is a very common practice in India. But usually all the salads call for sliced cucumbers and its most served without much seasoning/dressing.
I loved this salad coz of the tangyness that the lime juice was bringing to this dish. I made mint rice the other day and I didn’t know what would go well with it, as a side. I had some cucumber at home. I had other plans with the cucumber(basically to make sandwiches). But then I decided to make a salad with cucumber. And I am soo glad I made this. I am a person who gives importance to ‘combinations’ of food. I can’t eat random stuff with just another random stuff(for which DD calls me very picky :-P). But people who enjoy eating would understand where I am coming from 😉 This combination of mint rice and cucumber salad is definitely something that I am having again!
