Love this salad for something different to be served as a Mexican side, over your enchiladas, a fresh lunch, or even as even an appetizer served with tortilla chips!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

A refreshing cucumber salad for a summer with a kick. All the ingredients complement each other. Cumin adds a hint of smoky flavor. If you like heat then adjust the pepper flakes to your liking. This is great served as an easy side dish or with some tortilla chips. Either way you serve it, you can't go wrong with this cucumber salad. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
