Indian Summer Salad
trim and discard rough edges
generous squeeze of
salt to taste
fresh green chili
nigella seeds + more to sprinkle
nigella seeds are black sesame seeds, available at better supermarkets or Asian stores
Dice fennel, onion and bell pepeprs into very small cubes, 1cm, the smaller the better (now there’s a phrase we don’t hear often).
Half the cucumber lengthwise. Spoon out the seeds using a teaspoon. Then dice the cucumber into very small cubes, just like the rest.
Chop up mint, coriander and green chili very, very finely. Mix up with lemon juice and Greek yoghurt.
Mix everything together, sprinkle with nigella seeds and serve. Use leftovers for a light lunch the next day :).
