A refreshing cucumber & coriander salad

I discovered this delightful salad a few weeks ago and with a few tweaks to the recipe I have made this a firm favourite in our house.

It is so light and refreshing even my brother, who hates cucumber enjoyed it.


1 x large cucumber 

1 x Red Chilli

35ml x White wine vinegar 

80ml x Olive oil

1 tbsp x Fresh Coriander 

2 tsp x Caster Sugar

2 x tsp x Poppy Seeds


Slice the cucumber lengthways and dice into chunks.

Finely chop the chilli and put this in a bowl with the cucumber.
Mix the oil, vinegar and sugar together in a separate bowl and then add this to the cucumber mixture.

Season with salt and pepper and give it a good stir.

Taste the mixture and adjust your seasonings accordingly as this should be quite sweet yet sharp, kind of like pickle.

If not serving straight away keep it refrigerated until ready to serve.
Let me know what you think?
