Two Cucumber Salads. From The Archives. January 1999 and 2003.

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.

As you know from reading this blog’s sister site, I have been blogging FOREVER! The time has come to record many of these old recipes here on Heat in the Kitchen and A (Life) Time of Cooking. It is 17 years since I began blogging and 6 years since A (Life) Time of Cooking came into being. As part of those celebrations, during the next few months I am reblogging some of those recipes from 1996 – 2005. They are no longer in existence in the blogosphere, except , perhaps, where copied….. :) The recipe that appears below is exactly how it appeared when it first appeared on that blog long ago, along with the comments from that time.

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.
