Green and white crunchy salad
Easy, fresh and flavourful salad made with cucumber and radish/mooli/daikon
This is a variation of the Indian kachumbar salad. In Hindi, Kacha means ‘Raw or uncooked’. Kachumbar is literally small tiny pieces of raw vegetables mainly onion, tomato and cucumber. This salad is a version of the crunchy blend of cucumber and mooli/radish. The radish/mooli gives it a zesty flavour.
I like to leave the salad marinate in the lime/lemon juice for some time to allow the flavours to blend in. I have served this as an accompaniment with differet cuisines such as paella , Lebanese meat dishes and with Indian food. It works well with all types of cuisines.
- Cucumber- 1 grated with skin ( squeeze out the water)
- Mooli/ radish/daikon – 1 ( grated)
- Coriander leaves- small bunch chopped
- Mix of lime and lemon juice – generous squeeze on top
- Salt – add just before serving.
- Pinch of sugar
Mix the grated vegetables. Add mix of lemon and lime juice, pinch of sugar and mix well.
Mix the coriander leaves.
I have sprinkled some Japanese paprika powder to make it Radikal.
