Cucumber Salad

Aren't these cucumbers the most amazing colour? We recently ordered an organic seasonal vegetable box (which will be a one-off, it wasn't particularly good value) and it contained this wonderful cucumber. I made a salad with some onion, freshly ground black pepper and white wine vinegar and it was just lovely. Very sweet and firm and refreshing.

Those simple summer salads using the freshest vegetables and herbs are just wonderful. This looks very inviting.

Rachel - it was so crunchy, just perfect for hot weather

Girli - it's not something I have made very often, but I can see it becoming a favourite with us, too.

I am having a very cucumber weekend too. They are a wonderful part of summer, looks great!

Foodycat said...

Esi - they are underrated, I think!

Natashya - I must get some more.

I can't wait until the cukes are ready here (we have tons of baby ones in the garden) we love a fresh cuke salad with lunch. Sorry your box wasn't a good value. Ours is about 10 - 15% cheaper than buying the same organic veggies at the farmer's market
