Instructions

Step 1

Halve the cucumber lengthways and scoop out the seeds with a teaspoon.

Step 2

Slice and place the cucumber in a bowl. (This stops the salad from going sloppy.)

Step 3

Peel the carrot with a peeler to make long ribbons.

Step 4

Peel and slice the onion and add the lot to the bowl along with the tomatoes and toss together.

Step 5

Now make the dressing. In a small bowl put the yogurt, lime juice, and mint sauce. Then if using cumin seeds, toast them a little in a dry pan then add to the rest of the ingredients and mix. If you use ground cumin, just add it with the other ingredients.

Step 6

Put the dressing in the salad bowl and toss it all together, finishing with a few fresh coriander leaves.

This recipe is essentially an exercise in making something exciting from ingredients available from convenience stores. I live in the middle of nowhere and managed to get everything I needed for this. If you want to reduce fat content in your diet then you can use low fat yogurt. The idea of using yogurt as a base for salad dressing is true for the other recipes too.
