Recipe: Cucumber, herbs and poppy seed salad

Salads with aromatic herbs
August 29, 2009

I knew poppy seeds as a spice used on bread... but I didn't know that it can be used also on salads. Then I read Ganga's recipe, Cucumber, Herbs and Poppy Seed Salad and I really love the idea.

HerbsThese are the herbs that I used (I don't have coriander in my garden now, but it should be included): mint, parsley, basil. The recipe also called for a mild chili and I used my all-time-favourite Shishito.
