This is our favourite summer salad when the temps are soaring and we are too drained to cook or eat anything a cold salad such as this is most welcome.
1 large cucumber washed, peeled and finely cut.
3 medium size tomatoes
1 cup cooked sweet corn, or canned ones.
3 tbsp finely chopped fresh cilantro chopped
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp lime juice or more if you like.
Freshly ground coarse pepper, white or black
1 tsp coarsely powdered toasted cumin powder.
In a large salad bowl, add the chopped cucumbers.
Wash and chop the tomatoes.
Add the tomatoes and chopped cilantro to the bowl as well.
Add the corn.
Now drizzle the olive oil over the salad and add squeezed lime juice , a bit of salt and pepper. Add the toasted coarsely powdered cumin powder.
Toss the salad and adjust the quantities of lime, salt and pepper until you get the right preferred taste.
Let the salad sit for a few minutes or more before serving. The flavors would blend well .
Enjoy a tasty salad all by itself.
