I have been asked to pass on this recipe that I picked up off the internet.

This super simple cucumber salad is punctuated with small cubes of blue cheese, giving it a creamy, strong flavour. If you don't like the strength of blue cheese, it may be better for you to use something like a mild feta instead.

Ingredients:

    2 cucumbers
    1 small onion
    1 tsp. salt
    250ml soured cream (I used greek yoghurt instead)
    75g blue cheese, crumbled
    2 tbsp. white wine vinegar
    2 tbsp. freshly chopped dill (eneldo in Spanish)
    1 tbsp. caster sugar (I used a sweetener instead)
    Pinch pepper


Directions:

Peel the cucumber, cut in half and then scoop out the seeds. Slice into half moons, then sprinkle with salt. Leave for half an hour.

Meanwhile, thinly slice the onion. Mix with the soured cream, vinegar, dill, caster sugar and pepper. Gently stir in the cheese.

Pat the cucumber dry and then stir into the dressing. Refrigerate for half an hour before serving.

Chives would be equally as good as dill in this recipe depending on your personal preferences. This recipe serves four.
