This cucumber salad is so easy and simple to make. It was often served at dinner meetings whilst I travelling in Beijing. Fast forward a few months during a summer BBQ and I am serving it with grilled fish.
The coolness of the cucumber is flavored with garlic and olive oil, giving it a hint of a peppery taste, which also makes it a great accompaniment with your other salads that find themselves in a bun or wrap ready to welcome something grilled straight from the BBQ.
1 tbsp Virgin Olive oil
1 clove of garlic
Salt to taste.
Prep Time :10 minutes Serves: 4-6
Peel and finely chop the garlic, place in a bowl and stir in the olive oil.
Add salt a little at a time tasting so that it balances out the garlic.
Wash and thinly slice the cucumber, pat dry with a kitchen tea towel.
Add the sliced cucumber to the garlic oil mixture and mix together.
Serve or keep in the refrigerator until ready to serv.
