Cucumber and Mint Salad

 

Cucumber Mint Salad

Cucumber is underrated. On holiday's in Cyprus I've had it served as an appetiser with a pinch of salt. It's eaten with toothpicks while you wait for the main course to arrive. This recipe takes that as a starting point and adds mint, basil cider vinegar and chili to the mix.

 

Preparation time: Under 5 minutes

 

Ingredients:

400g cucumber sea salt pepper one small chili a tablespoon of cider vinegar Fresh mint leaves

 

Recipe:

Finely dice the cucumber, chili and mint and toss together. Add the cider vinegar, salt and pepper to taste and serve. Easy!
