Indian Spiced Cucumber Salad
I made this cucumber salad to use up some of the cucumbers in the fridge. It consists of diced cucumbers, lemon juice, two diced serrano chiles, peanuts and large-flake coconut, cumin and mustard seeds, and a handful of cilantro thrown in at the end. As I was making it I couldn't help but doubt myself. I really had no idea what it would taste like and it was not a combination of things I would have ever thought to try. I didn't think it could possibly taste good. But it did. We ate it with some store-bought whole wheat naan bread. It would be a great side salad to surprise people with at a picnic.
I'm not ready to do my CSA post for this week yet so I figured I would post this instead and work on that tomorrow. Cheers!
