After making this salad three times and following the advice of other reviewers, the measurements I thought tasted best were: 1 1/2 tsp honey, 1 T fresh lemon juice, 1/2 T chopped fresh mint, and 1 tsp cumin. I also thought something was missing and added a pinch of kosher salt. It did the trick by enhancing the other flavors and adding perfect balance. (I later saw another reviewer had also discovered this. :) ) It does taste amazing when left to sit in the fridge a bit (but don't mix into cucumbers til ready to serve due to water separation). I didn't find I needed the entire amount of dressing--just stirred in what I thought would be a good amount. Awesome easy salad to go with our spicy chicken curry!
The perfect accompaniment for every Indian meal I cook! DH doesn't favor the onions, the cucumbers are the standout here anyway. In restaurants they sometimes add carrots and chili peppers to this as well.
This got 5 stars from my whole family. We used cucumbers fresh from the garden with a little salt and really enjoyed this refreshing salad. Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT #8 :)
Excellent, Loved the flavor of lemon throughout this cucumber salad. Thank You. Made for ZWT8.
This is a refreshing and very simple side dish. I've never had lemon juice on my cucumbers before. I added a little zest for color. I made this for Zaar World Tour 8 for the Bistro Babes team
A lovely cucumber salad cookingpompom. It is refreshing, light, crisp, tender and the lemon flavor is soft and subtle. The cucumber was in the marinade for 1 1/2 hours and is very nicely picked, very refreshing. I enjoyed it just as it was with a little salt. Later in the week I will serve the rest of it with a spicy dish, I'm sure they will compliment one another perfectly. Made for the Fearless Red Dragons - ZWT8 - India
