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.
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.
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.
