Cucumber Salad With Basil Fennel Vinaigrette.

Do yourself a favour, and make this salad. It’s lip smacking good, so moreish and perfect for summer meals. I could really eat a plateful of this all day long. The weather is so warm here in Pune right now that all I look for is light meals and salads to cook our eat out.
