I just made this salad up, but it turned out so well as an accompaniment to Indian food that I thought I should post it. It's quick and easy to make, and for those who don't like American cucumbers, you can often get the "burpless" smaller varieties at Middle Eastern and Indian grocery stores.
- 1 large cucumber, skinned and cut into thick slices (halved depending on cucumber size)
- 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
- 1/2 tsp black peppercorns
- 2 Tbsp rice vinegar
- 2 Tbsp warm water
- 1/2 tsp sugar
- 1/2 tsp minced fresh cilantro
