Sorry...looks like I have been on a salad binge of late. Too much of korean influence I guess. This Ajumma is hooked on side dish. Beside kimchi, I have been trying out many light and easy side dishes to go with the meat dishes. As you know I have a meat eater at home...I have been pigging myself with meat too :p I have to whip up appetizing sides to have a well balanced diet everyday. Saw this recipe in one cookbook and I knew I have to try this recipe out and if it is as good as it looks, it will be added on my side-dish menu for sure :) And guess what.. we love it! The fragrant of the passionfruit dressing on those already juicy cucumber slices...gosh, it is the perfect dressing for a cucumber salad. So refreshing ,light and easy ! A keeper for sure.
