Salads

Cucumber & Tomato salad

1 large Cucumber
3 Tomatoes (about 1 lb)
Small handful of fresh Cilantro, chopped
1 tbsp Olive Oil
juice from 1/2 Lime or more to taste
Sea Salt and freshly cracked Pepper

  • Wash and peel the cucumber if it has a lot of wax coating it. Cut into small dice and place into a non reactive bowl.
  • Wash and dice the tomatoes. Add the tomatoes and chopped cilantro to the bowl as well.
  • Dribble the olive oil over the salad and start off with a small amount to freshly squeezed lime juice as well as a bit of salt and pepper. Toss the salad and adjust the quantities of lime, salt and pepper until you are happy with the balance and taste.
  • Allow to the salad to sit for a few minutes or more before serving. This gives the flavors a chance to meld a bit.
