A Barbadian spin on cucumber salad, almost always served as a side dish with main meals. Also used (with the addition of parsley and a touch of allspice) as the 'pickle' in 'soused' meats (pork, lamb, beef/oxtails, chicken). Fresh lime juice is the key to this delicious salad.

Not a bad cucumber salad, a bit different from what I'm used to, I feel it needed something, I did add a extra dash of hot pepper sauce, a little bit more water. There wasn't any juice to this salad, so I wasn't sure extactly if that was right. It's seasoned for sure, dressed??? I'm not so sure. But it's a decent light summery salad for sure. Do try. Will make again and play around with the flavor more. Thanks

i have made my own version of this salad for my family. the addition of fresh parley, some onion and maybe more lime juice for a tangy flavour. shredding the cucumber finely may also help in the absorption of the flavors. Bye oh and ps. leaving the cucumber until it turns soft: it has something to do with osmosis. i'm 14 so i'm not a pro but i'm barbadian so i hope i helped
