Mixed Salad in Cucumber Basket.

Whats better than this to impress our family and friends!A luscious sweet and tangy combination of fruits and veggies in a small cucumber basket.I swear this one is a treat for those who bother about calories as a snack to munch on. It’s quite interesting as i topped it with some feta!

First of all i’m not a big fan of salads(now a days liking it)!But this one i really enjoyed!Not only we,kids too.I’m sure most of them love cucumber ,so this is the better way to include other fruits and veggies(they hate) in their diet.

And the most fun part is eating this!Yay you can eat this salad as a finger food.The crunchy cucumber stuffed with sweet fruits and a tangy yummy dressing with bites of cheese in it!Incredibly good!
