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.
