Over the weekend, I tried a delicious recipe for Tandoori Chicken. We skewered the chicken and grilled it. For a light side to go with it, I made a fast cucumber salad.
The cucumber salad is slightly sweet and tart with a hint of spice and toasted sesame. It was the perfect accompaniment for the skewers.
I would serve this salad at a cook out as a light, crunchy side dish. It adds a bit of a kick to any dish. I highly recommend trying it with the tandoori chicken.
