Simple Cucumber-Hummus Salad with Sumac

Summer is fast approaching and it is time to switch from warm soups to crispy crunchy salads.  This salad can be served as a starter or you can make it a meal by adding some grilled chicken or thinly sliced lunch meat.


  • Cucumber - 3 cups - peeled and sliced thin
  • Radish - 1 cup - sliced thin
  • Onion - 1 to 2 table spoons thinly sliced
  • Hummus - 2 table spoons (I used store bought Garlic hummus)
  • Sumac - 1 tea spoon
  • Crushed pepper powder - 1 tea spoon
  • Salt - add per taste
  • Lemon - 1 table spoon
  • Grilled Chicken/lunch meat (Optional) - 1/2 cub sliced

Mix all the ingredients well in a glass bowl.  Tasty cucumber hummus salad is ready to be served.

Note:  I learnt this tip from a good friend.  Washing the Onions few times in ice water makes it crunchier and removes the spicyness from it (I get heart burn if I eat raw Onions and this helped).
