This was a very tasty simple salad...I just read in the chef's notes something about onion...no onion listed in the ingredients...those can only improve the flavor...what I really enjoyed about this salad was how fresh it was...it had a nice touch of flavor from the chili powder...although you can barely taste it...so don't add any extra or I believe it will become the dominate flavor. I used head lettuce cuz that's what I had but I think any kind would work...because of the head lettuce my salad lost a lot of color...so if using that I would suggest leaving the cucumber unpeeled...or...adding in finely chopped red onion...I also used cherry tomatoes cut in quarters...the lime added a nice citrus taste...thanks for posting this tasty recipe...:)
A wonderful light salad that is perfect for a hot summer's day.
I used cherry tomatos and iceberg lettuce, I did leave out the chillI and the tangy flavours were really wonderful although not spicy, I might add just a little chilli next time to see the difference, although we are not really chilli lovers in this family, so it will interesting to see if the family comment, as they really loved this salad without the chilli anyway.
Great salad Baby Kato. Thanks so much for posting.
Talk about fresh! This abounds in taste and full pleasure, you simply can't go wrong here. I loved the tartness of the vegetables and lettuces. I could of easily eaten the whole bowl myself, but alas, saved it for my fellow salad eaters. I didn't change anything! Thanks for posting!
