Scandi Cucumber Salad

You know our love of a good salad. And this is good salad. Mega quick, using few ingredients and is a zingy and refreshing dance on your tastebuds.

Oh and veegs, and fat free. 

5 mins | serves 2 as a side | soooo easy


1/2 cucumber 
2 tbsp white wine vinegar 
1 tbsp caster sugar 
1 tsp yellow mustard seeds 
small handful dill or parsley or both, finely chopped


Heat the vinegar and sugar in a small pan until the sugar dissolves. Transfer to a bowl so it cools faster and leave to cool down for a bit.

Meantime, peel yer cucumber, cut it in half lengthways and slice into half moons. Whack it into a bowl, pour the vinegar mix over, toss in the mustard seeds and give it all a good stir.

Transfer to your serving dish and garnish with parsley/dill.

Randi Scandi.
