Cucumber Salad (Selada Ketimun) Recipe

Indonesians love having a variety of side dishes to accompany their main dish. Cucumber Salad is one of the most popular of those side dishes, although it’s also often eaten as a small salad on its own. Fresh lime juice envelops the crunchy cucumber chunks in a refreshingly tart dressing, with zesty kaffir lime leaves providing an unforgettably aromatic accent. Sweet red onions and spicy chili peppers add different dimensions to this simple salad. Savory, sweet, and tangy cucumbers are an addictive accompaniment to many of Indonesia’s spicy dishes. On a warm tropical day, when eating a grilled meat or curry with warm white rice, this Cucumber Salad helps to cool off a fiery meal.

Ingredients :

    • 2 large cucumbers (1 lb/ 500 g), cut into small chunks
    • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
    • 8 kaffir lime leaves, finely sliced
    • 1-2 bird’s-eye chili peppers, finely chopped
    • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
    • 3/4 teaspoon salt
    • 11/2 teaspoons sugar

Method :

Toss all the ingredients together in a medium sized bowl until thoroughly combined. Allow the cucumber salad to sit for 10 minutes before serving. Store up to 3 days in a tightly sealed container.
