Ribbon Cucumber Stuff Salad
1 Large Cucumber - peeled
1 Large Tomatoe - firm and ripe
Few Pitted Green Olives
Tooth pick

For the Dressing
1 Teaspoon Olive oil
A pinch of chat masala
A pinch of pepper powder
A pinch of salt
1/4 Teaspoon Lemon Juice / Vinegar


Slice the cucumber in thin ribbons ( I sliced them in the V Slicer).  Cut the tomatoe too in fine roundales.  Take a ribbon of cucumber, place a slice of tomatoe and a olive in the middle and roll it  into a ring.  Secure this ends with a toothpick and keep aside.  In this manner make all the rings and arrange them in  a serving plate, keep this in refrigerator till ready to serve.

In a small bottle add the ingredients for the dressing and shake well .  Just before serving pour the dressing.  The look of this salad invites you to devour it.  So go a head and enjoy it.  Happy eating!
