    Posted on July 22nd, 2014 charlotte 1 comment
    This is a dish for hot weather from BBC Good Food. It’s perfect for barbecues. Janet, who normally posts our recipes, says: “It was really tasty when we had it for lunch.”
    Serves: 4
    Preparation time: 10 minutes.  No cooking involved

    1 large cucumber, peeled
    1 tsp golden caster sugar
    1 tbsp rice white wine vinegar
    2 tbsp soy sauce
    1 tbsp sesame oil
    small knob of ginger, finely chopped
    2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
    1 large red chilli, halved, deseeded and finely sliced
    2 spring onions, finely sliced
    large handful coriander leaves

    Slice the cucumber in half lengthways and use a teaspoon to scoop out the seeds. Slice cucumber into thick diagonal chunks. Tip it into a bowl and sprinkle with the sugar, vinegar and large pinch of salt. Leave for about 30 mins in the fridge. Meanwhile, tip the other salad ingredients into a bowl. Drain the cucumber and tip in with the rest.
