- Total time15 mins
- 1 large cucumbers
- 2 tbsp chilli infused olive oil
- 1 tbsp sesame seeds
- 1 tsp clear honey
- 1 tsp red wine vinegar
Heat the barbecue. Cut the cucumber in ½ lengthways and bash with a rolling pin so it opens a bit. Place the cucumber on the barbecue, skin-side up, and cook for 7-10 minutes, or until it looks lightly charred. Cut into small bitesized pieces.
In a serving bowl, mix the other ingredients with a pinch of salt and pepper to make a dressing, then add the warm cucumber. Mix well and serve.
