Crunchy Cucumber Salad

BM # 26   Day 3


Cucumbers as you all know are my favorite, and this salad is simple, quick and really delicious.One thing you ought to remember..to serve it chilled.A warm salad tastes absolutely horrible.Today is the final day for this edition of BM, but we are meeting next month….for a month long marathon, so friend’s do come back .


What we need....
Cucumbers, peeled and cubed 
Apples , cubed 
Potatoes, boiled, cubed 
Cranberries, Blue berries, Raisins 
Pomegranate pearls 
Ready eggless mayo 
Salt to taste 
Pepper to taste 
Dried or fresh parsley
Garnish
Walnuts, chopped 



How to go about
Take a bowl of water, add ice to it.
Add chopped cubed, apples and cucumbers along with ½ tsp lemon juice.
Drain after 15 minutes.
Mix all the other  ingredients.
Garnish with walnuts.
Serve chilled.




The proportions to this salad are totally up to your choice..they will not make much difference to the basic taste.
