Sri Lankan Cucumber Salad

Pipingnga Cucumber Salad Sri Lanka

Cucumber is a healthy veggie which can be used in different recipes. Salads are on top of the list. In Sri Lanka, we own different recipes for making salads. We, Sri Lankans eat most of the veggies and even greens as salads or as sambol. I guess eating raw is healthier than cooked dishes.
This Sri Lankan Cucumber Salad is a really simple & easy salad, which well goes with rice and curry. Adjust the quantities as per taste & serving requirement, I am sure you would like to eat a raw cucumber salad in Sri Lankan style.
