Cucumber Salad

Diwali celebrations are over and people are complaining of overeating all the sugar rich and fat laden food. This cucumber salad is a perfect antidote for the Diwali mania. We had this salad with boiled corn on the cob.


2 big cucumbers peeled and sliced

1/2 cup shredded cabbage

1 big handful fresh cilantro leaves

1 green chili

3-4 cloves garlic

1 tablespoon Mayo (I used eggless)

1/2 teaspoon sugar

salt to taste.

In a salad bowl put the sliced cucumbers and cabbage to chill for 20 mins this will lend the crunch. Meanwhile in a mortar and pestle coarse crush the cilantro, green chili and garlic. Remove the cucumber bowl add the coarse crushed herbs, sugar, salt and mayo. Mix well to get an even coating. Serve immediately.

This perfectly crunchy salad livened by the spice of green chili, cilantro and garlic accompanied with boiled corn on the cob is just what one would enjoy most post all the festivities.


  1. This is very good post-Diwali recipe. Perfect & light. Such a relief to the heavy dishes all stuffed in during the festive season.

  2. It looks light and healthy....great option!!

  3. Anjali, this looks perfect, for a light refreshing lunch!
