Cucumber Salad

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 Cucumber

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.
