About this Recipe

This is a refreshing salad with a mixed flavourful dressing which is prepared using English cucumber and Pine nuts. English cucumber is a variety of cucumber which has very less seeds ( sometimes with no seeds ) and with less bitter taste than the regular ones. The skin of cucumber will be thinner and this is an excellent variety for preparing salads. Adding pine nuts to the salad gives a delicious buttery taste in each and every bite. As mentioned in my previous Oats & Peas Congee post, I have used one more healthy product "Buckwheat honey" which I received from Gondiaorganic and it tasted yummy. It is rich and tasty without overpowering flavour. Buckwheat honey is a dark coloured honey with a robust flavour and also, has higher concentrations of macronutrients and anti - oxidant compounds compared to other varieties.

Ingredients & Quantity
  • 3 English Cucumber, Grated lengthwise
  • 1 Onion, Sliced
  • 3 Tbsp Spring Onions, Finely chopped
  • 4 Tbsp Pinenuts
  • For Dressing :
  • 1 Tbsp Honey ( I have used Buckwheat honey )
  • 1/2 Tsp Lemon Juice
  • Salt to taste
  • Less than 1/4 Tsp Pepper powder
  • 1 Tbsp Olive oil
How to cook?
  1. Mix all the ingredients given in "For Dressing" and keep aside.
  2. Squeeze the water from the grated cucumber and add it to a salad bowl.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients ( pine nuts, onion and spring onions ) along with cucumber.
  4. Now pour the prepared dressing and gently mix well.
