    The secret to this summery salad - use kitchen roll to dry the cucumbers really well.

    I like to serve this cool, refreshing raita with my Lamb Tagine, which you can find on this site. Make the salad early in the day and keep in the refrigerator to let the flavours blend and intensify. Add more mint to taste, but do not substitute dried mint; the flavour is just not the same.

    Cucumber sunomono is a tasty Japanese cucumber salad made with just a few easy to find ingredients. Serve this as a Japanese starter, or as a salad or side dish to pair with any meal. Nice for a summer BBQ!

    A quick and easy summer salad, best with local and in season cucumber and radishes. Even better picked straight from the garden! This salad is the perfect accompaniment to meat or fish dishes.

    A delightfully light refreshing side dish of marinated cucumber, red onion, fresh coriander and peanuts. It goes wonderfully with Asian-inspired barbecued meats. Hope you enjoy it!

    A bit like a Greek salad - this chunky salad doesn't need any lettuce or oil. It's full of flavour from olives, red onion and feta cheese. It's very easy to make and perfect for barbecue parties and picnics.

    I ate this salad at a friend's house the other day and asked for the recipe immediately. It's quick to make, tastes delicious and is a fantastic way to enjoy fresh dill. Stunning when served with salmon.

    No oil is used in this cool and refreshing summer salad made with cucumbers, red onion, and rice wine vinegar. Serve with baked salmon and boiled potatoes for a very Norwegian meal.

    This salad is spicy, light, refreshing and packed full of flavour. Sliced cucumbers are tossed in a hot and spicy dressing. Serve as cold starter.
