When the summer days are hot as they are here in late august and we are getting a bit tired of tomatoes, we look around for something different. cucumbers are still in season, so why not alittle salad or salsa if you will.

Some people have problems with digesting cucumber. To fascilitate the digestion, I peel it and remove the seeds. In this case, I leave the peel of one half on simply for the touch of green in the salad, but the whole cucumber can be peeled.

As you can see, it is very easy and very quick, perfect for those days where time and energy are lmited.

Cucumber salad recipe

Pincée de fleur de sel:

  • Peel the whole cucumber for better disgestion.
  • Add chopped chives along with the spring onion and chives for a touch of green.
  • Add a tsp of mild mustard to the vinaigrette for a more pungent salad.

Enjoy!
