Strange dish. Don't use butter-- sub olive or other oil. When you mix the buttery cumin and chili pepper in with the cool cuc's the butter turns solid again and resists any sort of even distribution, clumping in an unhelpful way. My in-laws and man liked this a lot better than I did. I wouldn't make it again, but they snapped it up, so maybe it's one of those love it or hate it recipes.

Cool and sweet, with a mild chili kick, and the cumin adds the twist that makes this recipe different from the scads of blah cucumber salad recipes out there. I'm definitely adding this one to my repertoire.

This is a wonderful summer salad, and is great with Indian food. I added very small amounts of red, orange and yellow bell peppers for a little more color. My husband doesn't like things too hot, so I took the seeds out of the chili before cutting it up and putting it in the salad.
