Refreshing and Flavorful!

More often than not, lunch or dinner accompanies a salad. Especially, dinner needs to be lighter and hence, people include a salad in it. I think cucumber salad is one of the best salads among all the varieties. However, the cucumber and onion salad I show you now is unique because it accompanies a dip made of fresh mint and coriander leaves.

Cucumber is low in calories but high in many important vitamins and minerals. Mint is known for its soothing properties. Both the veggies are high in antioxidants, low in calorie, and promote hydration.

While cucumber adds crunchiness to this salad, mint leaves add the refreshing taste. Mint leaf dip makes a heavenly combination with red onions. This is a Thai-inspired salad.

This is a raw salad. There is no heating involved in this dish. This quick and easy salad needs only a few ingredients. Probably, you have these ingredients always in your kitchen. I could make the salad and dip for 3 people in 15 minutes.

Let me share with you the detailed recipe.
