Cucumber, feta & strawberry salad

  • Preparation time: 10 minutes
  • Total time: 10 minutes 10 minutes

Serves: 4

Ingredients

1 medium cucumber
200g strawberries, washed, hulled and sliced
50g watercress, tough stalk removed
100g feta
Juice ½ lemon
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Small bunch fresh mint, roughly chopped

Method

1. Slice the cucumber lengthways into thin ribbons using a vegetable peeler. When you get to the seeds in the middle, turn the cucumber and slice from the other side. Discard the seeds.

2. Arrange the cucumber strips loosely on a large serving platter. Scatter over the strawberries and watercress leaves, then crumble big pieces of feta over the top.

3. Whisk together the lemon juice and olive oil and drizzle over the salad. Finish by sprinkling over the mint and adding a good grinding of coarse black pepper. You shouldn’t need extra salt due to the saltiness of the feta.
