Cucumber Salad (Acar Ketimun)

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 30 mins

This is an Indonesian salad. I found the recipe in my Extending the Table cookbook, and since I have an explosion of cucumbers in my garden right now, I am trying every possible variation of cucumber salad! :) Chilling time is the cook time.

  1. Mix all ingredients together. If you prefer a little heat, you can add slices of hot chili peppers to taste.

Made per the recipe, using persian cucumbers which don't need to be peeled. Nice balanced seasonings (I don't see any optional chilies - made per the recipe using black pepper). So easy too. Thanks for sharing.

Great taste and easy to make. I forgot to add the chili peppers but I will next time to try it out. Thank you for a new taste and a new way to use up cucumbers Bigbadbrenda I made this for ZWT4 the Chic Chefs.

This falls into the 5-star category because not only is it good, but it is simple, quick to prepare, the flavors meld beautifully, and just look at the nutrition facts! I didn't add the optional chili peppers, because nobody else in my family likes chili heat :-( But that is ok, because as is, this recipe is a winner! Thanks, CraftScout! Made for ZWT 4, Mamma Mia's!
