This beautiful and fresh Cucumber Tomato Salad is a wonderful starter or side dish to add to your next party menu. Design your platter with a colorful combination of cucumbers, tomatoes and your freshly made, pickled red onions.

You will need to prepare this dish in advance as the onions need enough time to marinate in the vinaigrette pickling juice – a mix of coriander, mustard and cumin seeds with cider vinegar. Garnish with extra sprinkles of cilantro leaves for that special touch.
