Lent Chows : Cucumber salad with a twist

>> April 2, 2010

This cucumber salad is very similar to ensaladang pipino, but prepared in a different way. This was first introduced to me in Holland, via Tita Dijne (mark's mom). It's very simple but I find it appetizing. First off, the cut is different, and you put some spicy flavor in it.

- 1 medium sized cucumber, peeled, de-seeded, and cut into cubes
- 1 tsp sambal oelek
- 2-3 Tbsp. of calamansi juice
- 1 tsp. sugar
- salt and pepper to taste

1. Combine cucumber, calamansi juice, sugar, salt and pepper. Mix well. Remember, you can always adjust the sweetness/sourness/saltiness according to your preference.
2. Add the sambal oelek. This will add that spicy taste.

I work and live at night time. I am a person deprived of natural light. I rarely cook in the morning as I'm almost always asleep, else busy with house chores. As much as I love natural light in my photography, I'm afraid I don't usually have that luxury, unless I sacrifice my sleep, or make an effort to stay up longer during the day to do a cooking + photo session. So I depend on my flash, and sometimes, available light from my fluorescent bulbs. Although, in my opinion, nothing beats the natural light, I am, so far, satisfied with my shots using my flash that I learned to love.

I always look forward to the weekends for some sunlight.
