Garden-Fresh Salad

My patio vegetable patch has been yielding some lovely cucumbers and plum tomatoes this week. These are great for snacking, but I occasionally toss them into a bowl for a salad. The salad here is a simple salad, but it packs a great punch when accompanied with a nice heavy desi-style lunch. Alternately pair it with Spicy Paneer-Filled Rolls or a Pilaf for a complete meal!

2 small cucumbers, peeled and quartered
1 cup yellow plum tomatoes
1/2 cup baby carrots
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp cumin, roasted and crushed
Pinch of crushed black pepper
Salt, to taste


  1. Toss all the vegetables in a large mixing bowl.
  2. In a small bowl, mix the salt, black pepper, cumin into the lemon juice.
  3. Pour over the vegetables so as to coat them evenly.

This Garden-Fresh Salad goes to WYF Soups/Starters/Salad hosted by Easy Crafts. It also goes to Grow Your Own # 17 hosted this fortnight by Denise at Chez Us.
