Its a great alternative to fried/junk snack items especially if you are watching your weight or even otherwise. Just like other salads, this recipe calls for mixing the main ingredients (fruits here) with the dressing which is made of mint, lemon juice, honey & roasted cumin powder. The addition of cucumber provides the right balance of crunchiness to this otherwise soft fruit salad.

½ to 1 cucumber (depending on size)
few fresh mint leaves
juice of ½ lemon
½ teaspoon lemon rind
1 tablespoon of honey
½ teaspoon of roasted cumin seeds powder
salt & pepper to taste
Wash the peach, raspberries & cucumber. Now cut the peach into half, remove the seed & make thin slices. Similarly cut the cucumber into half, seed the cucmber by scarping off the seeds with a spoon & then cut into thin slices
Tip:Ensure peach, raspberries & cucumber are cold or kept in fridge before making this salad as it will taste better. You can use frozen peaches after thawing them. However frozen raspberries are not preferred as they don't give the fresh fruit feel to this salad
Now combine the peach & cucumber slices into a bowl. Tear the mint leaves into small pieces & add. Then add lemon juice, lemon rind, honey, roasted cumin seeds powder, salt & pepper. Mix well. Last but not the least add the raspberries & mix well.
