Savory Cucumber Relish (Acar) Recipe

Savory Cucumber Relish is a tangy, condiment used frequently in Indonesia to accompany meat dishes and appetizers. Most often used with meat on skewer (satay) appetizers in addition to the traditional Indonesian peanut dressing. Savory Cucumber Relish can be made several days in advance. It’s best to seerve the Cucumber Relish in a bowl with a spoon since every one has their favorite way of eating this condiment, either by drizzling the marinade over their food or enjoying it as a separate dish with rice.

Ingredients :

    • 1 large cucumber, peeled and cubed
    • 1 medium carrot, diced
    • 1/2 cup (125 ml) white vinegar
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 4 tablespoons sugar

Method :

    1. Mix all the ingredients together in a medium sized bowl until thoroughly combined and the sugar has dissolved.
    2. Place the Savory Cucumber Relish in either a closed jar or tightly wrapped bowl and refrigerate at least overnight before serving. The longer you leave the relish to marinate, the better it tastes. Stored properly, it can last in the refrigerator for several weeks.
