Cucumber Salad

Theme: Salads

I love making salads and we all enjoy them . At times salads are our dinner , though most of the times they are served before the meals. Since cucumbers are full of water , I love using them in my salads. The cucumbers along with potatoes and peas tastes really awesome. The spices in this salad are on the medium side. If you do not get yellow chilly powder, you could use red chilly powder. The winter peas taste delicious and sweet, so even if the salad is spicy, it gets balanced with fresh peas. This definitely is a very simple salad but trust me you can finish a big bowl of it without feeling guilty.
