Pickled Cucumber Salad

11 Sep

Cucumbers are prolific croppers and are best eaten fresh as they are picked so in summer we eat a lot of cucumber salads with an oriental flavour to make the best use of them. This one pickles the cucumbers and is great served with fried or grilled foods such as barbecued chicken wings.
Serves 4 as an accompaniment

  • 1 cucumber
  • 60ml water
  • 1 tbsp palm sugar
  • 60ml rice vinegar (or any light white vinegar)
  • 1cm cube of ginger peeled and grated
  • 1 small red chilli de-seeded and finely sliced

Peel the cucumber and cut into quarters length ways. Remove the seeds and slice thinly. Mix the remaining ingredients stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Mix the dressing and cucumber and refridgerate until ready to serve.
