Serves: 4 as a side
½ tsp salt
1 tsp finely grated fresh root ginger
2 tbsp chilli oil
2 tsp honey
2 tsp light soy sauce
2 tbsp Japanese rice vinegar
1. Rinse and dry the cucumber and cut off the very ends. Lay it down flat on a chopping board and use a rolling pin to bash the cucumber along its length, crushing and splitting it a little. Now roughly chop the cucumber and toss with the salt. Transfer to a colander in the sink and leave for 20 minutes.
2. Combine all the remaining ingredients in a serving bowl. Add the cucumber and toss through to mix.
