Generally, there are only so many ways you can make a cucumber salad. Mostly, in India Cucumber is consumed a lot during summers in salads or raitas. In a salad, we generally just slice it along with tomatoes, onions etc and sprinkle some chaat masala, kala namak or lemon on top. However, today I thought of making a different and fun Asian Cucumber Salad with a distinct flavour which is also super delicious to have on side of a meal.
Certainly, this Asian Cucumber Salad is crunchy and refreshing which balances so well with the varied flavours that it has to offer like sour, sweet, salty and spicy. Without a doubt, this salad is perfect for summer and has to offer so many flavours without the need for a lot of effort. As always, this recipe is totally customizable, so feel free to add more veggies like tomatoes, peas, onions in there and top it with your favourite seeds and nuts.
