    Quick pickled cucumber

    "Green cucumbers are a crisp spring treat eaten raw, but they’re bold enough to stand up to all sorts of treatment. Their mellow flavour makes them ideal for pickling, and they’rerefreshing in a chilled soup during the summer. Try a slice in gin cocktails, too. " Skye Gyngell

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Total time: 15 minutes 15 minutes

    Serves: 4

    Ingredients

    2 cucumbers, finely sliced
    2 tsp sea salt
    1½ tbsp white wine vinegar
    1½ tbsp caster sugar

    Method

    1. Toss the cucumbers with the salt and tip into a colander. Cover with a saucer and place a weight, such as a tin of beans, on top. Set aside for 20 minutes.

    2. Remove the plate and squeeze the cucumber gently between your hands to get rid of any excess water, then pat dry with kitchen paper. Toss with the vinegar and sugar and a handful of chopped dill, if liked. Delicious in hamburgers or as an accompaniment to smoked salmon.
