I enjoyed the lime flavor & thought it added an unexpected sparkle to a cucumber salad. I skipped the mint (personal preference) and could see this salad paired with a Tex-Mex meal too. Thank you for sharing the recipe!

Made for the Spring PAC Safari 2013, this recipe definitely has versatility to recommend it. While described as a recipe of Indian origin, I agree w/another reviewer that the combo of ingredients is also decidedly Tex-Mex. It would be equally welcome as a relish side for both cuisines, could be used as the basis of a shrimp ceviche w/some proportional adjustments & be moved even closer to Tex-Mex w/the addition of halved black olives &/or avocado (a comment made by my DH). Green onions are rarely found here in Iceland, so I subbed red onion & otherwise made the recipe as written. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us.
