What is kachumber?
Kachumber salad at its core contains fresh chopped tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, lemon juice, cilantro and sometimes, chili peppers and radish. There are regional varieties and personal preparations that can include other fresh vegetables. I add radish to my recipe as I just LOVE the light peppery hit and crisp texture.
Kachumber is typically dressed simply in lemon juice, vinegar or sometimes yoghurt. Lastly, the salad is commonly sprinkled with cayenne pepper, chilli powder or chilli flakes.
