It's that time of the year where everyone is running to finish up things before the holidays start.. You can feel the rush everywhere in everyone! I'm running going from last minute meetings to Christmas shopping, to making sure we have everything sorted out before we head to Beirut for the holidays. That's it, the year is almost over and we need to pack up and say goodbye to 2011! As much as I love welcoming a new year, I always get a little sad when the year ends.. Emotional, thoughtful and all that cheezy stuff I tend to get into.. Anyways, let's hope that 2012 is a good one for all of us.. InshAllah!

As there's no time for elaborate cooking these past few days, I'm just going to post my quick, simple but delish cucumber salad which goes beautifully well with the Butter Chicken posted a couple of days ago, or as a side to any dish really. A D's Kitchen express recipe for tonight! 

Serves 6 – 8
Prep & Cook Time: ~ 5 minutes
  • 6 large cucumbers, thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup rice vinegar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp fresh mint, chopped
In a bowl, toss the cucumbers, vinegar, salt, sugar, and mint. Place in the fridge to marinate and cool for at least 30 minutes and serve cold.
