Cucumber and mint salad


















Cucumber has just started to turn up in my veg box, strongly and sweetly flavoured. It's delicious with mint from the garden roughly chopped, a good squeeze of lemon juice, and a tiny drizzle of oil. Mmm

Hi Joanna
Always interesting to see what you make with the contents of your Riverford box as I live in your area and get my box on a Tuesday too! Love your blog and the recipes - as if I haven't got enough already; only four shelves full at the moment. Jane.

Mint I have...everywhere!
No cukes yet.... but I like the idea of the combination!

Thanks for kind words Marigold. Oh Jane, the pressure, the pressure ;) Katie my mint is going haywire too, lots of tea required, as it's coming up in places where we haven't seen mint for two or three years

Yes, I'd forgotten mint with cucumber!

What a lovely idea, I have masses of mint too - must buy a cucumber and make this salad. Maybe when it is a tad warmer??
