About this recipe: Blue cheese dresses up an ordinary cucumber salad to make a lovely summer staple. If blue cheese isn't for you, try a mild feta cheese instead, and add a squirt of lemon juice. Perfect for a picnic!


Serves: 4 

  • 2 large cucumbers, peeled and sliced in half lengthways
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 small onion, minced
  • 250ml soured cream
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  • 1 tablespoon caster sugar
  • 1 pinch white pepper, or to taste
  • 75g crumbled blue cheese

  1. With a spoon, scoop out the seeds from the cucumber halves. Slice the cucumbers into thick half moons, and place the slices on a plate on kitchen paper. Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon of salt over the cucumber slices, and set aside.
  2. Place the onion, soured cream, white wine vinegar, dill, sugar and white pepper in a bowl, and mix until well combined. Lightly stir in the blue cheese. Pat the cucumber slices dry with kitchen paper, and lightly mix them into the salad. Refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving; season to taste with salt just before serving.
