Cooking: Two Cucumber Salads

Two Cucumber Salads

Cucumbers are a little under-rated in this household, yet they make beautiful salads (and incredible juices!). Meet two wonderful cucumber salads. They are so similar yet distinctly different in taste.

Mr Well’s Translucent Cucumber Salad

Looks spectacular on a white plate!

1 cucumber generous sprinkling of salt 1 Tblspn white wine vinegar
3 Tblspn cold pressed virgin olive oil Maldon sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Peel the cucumber and slice extremely thinly. Arrange in a circular pattern on a large dish, without making layers. Sprinkle generously with salt and leave for 30 minutes. Drain and pat dry. Sprinkle with the vinegar and drizzle with olive oil, and season. Leave 30 minutes before serving. The cucumber will be translucent and moist.


Amber’s Cucumber Salad

Oh, this is so yummy! Influenced by life with Ken, no doubt….

cucumber Rice wine vinegar the best virgin olive oil
freshly ground or cracked black pepper

Peel the cucumber and slice thinly. Arrange on a dish, and drizzle with rice wine vinegar and olive oil. Grind pepper over, serve and wait for the praises.

And finally a little heat for dinner. Oh so good. All recipes will be on the blog eventually, or I can add them here if you need them sooner. 💙 A fun salad - the shaving takes a bit of work. But light and bright for a Sunday Arvo get together. Fresh fruits, so tempting these hot days. Chaat Masala livens this salad up. Late summer tomatoes are the best. Marinated with balsamic and harder herbs for a change from the usual tomato dishes. Would you believe? Breakfast. Light and refreshing, tangy. With a coffee, what else is needed? One of those nights with a lot of awake time. #couldntsleep A quiet #breakfast this morning. Figs, mangoes and a lassi. #Saturday #Weekend #quiet A winner for dinner.
