Cucumber

July's best: Cucumber

A major player in salads (and in DIY beauty treatments) the cool cucumber can just as happily be used to bring highly nutritious freshness to a wide range of dishes.

Our quick and tasty tip:

  • Peel and slice the cucumber as thinly as possible. Then arrange in a dish and pour over warmed rice wine vinegar and caster sugar. Sprinkle with finely chopped dill, season with salt and pepper and leave to marinate. Drain before serving.
