This is a cool salad for a hot day. I love to serve it with grilled chicken or fish. It is also great as a snack with pita chips.

Directions

  1. Place the cucumber slices into a colander set in the sink, and sprinkle with salt. Set aside and allow to drip.
  2. In a salad bowl, mix together the red onion, red bell pepper, lime zest and juice, cilantro, sugar, curry powder, and hot pepper sauce until thoroughly combined and the sugar has dissolved. Drain the cucumber slices, and pat them dry with paper towels. Stir the cucumbers into the salad. Gently toss the avocados with the salad and serve.

I made this for lunch today. I don't care for curry powder so I left it and the sugar out of the recipe. I added a few splashes of seasoned rice wine vinegar instead. I loved it! I will make it often with my changes. PS, try adding some salad shrimp....wow!

This was excellent. Made for 2. I cut everything in half. I didn't have cilantro so I added 2 tbls of Epicure salsa seasoning. I used 3 tablespoons of Real lime and added two chopped up tomatoes. Would have been enough for four.

I made this salad for a Labor Day pot luck. Everyone LOVED it!!!! It was so easy to make. This salad is cool and refreshing but packs a little zip. So delish!
