Oh and veegs, and fat free.
5 mins | serves 2 as a side | soooo easy
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.
A sweet and sour cucumber salad is common place in all Scandinavian countries. This particular version hails from Sweden.
