Cucumber Salad


Every year in summer I always have such a big harvest of cucumbers and find I really need to get through them fast if I don't give enough away. Sometimes, all you need is a really simple, quick and easy basic cucumber salad that could use some of our garden herbs.

Here's one of my favourite recipes to help you with your summertime cucumber abundance.

Completely delicious!


Cucumber Salad

Ingredients

2 Cucumbers (based on Burpless or Continental types), sliced or chopped

Fresh Dill, torn
Fresh Basil, leaves torn
Fresh Coriander, leaves torn

Dressing

1/4 cup Olive Oil (fresh type is fruitiest)
2 Tablespoons White Sugar
2 Tablespoons White Vinegar
1 teaspoon Salt
Cracked Black Pepper, to taste
(Put in jar and shake well to combine)

Method

Let the herbs sit on the cut cucumber for a few minutes to infuse before pouting over the handmade dressing.

If the cucumber appears too watery, allow them to sit on a paper towel to dry a little before returning them to the bowl to dress.
