Recipe: Feta, cucumber and mint spring salad



2 mini cucumbers
6 radishes
2 good handfuls of arugula/rocket
A small handful of fresh mint leaves
150g feta cheese, broken into small pieces
10-15 small black olives
Ciabatta or other crusty bread
3tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1tbsp red wine vinegar
A good squeeze of lemon juice
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


To make the dressing, whisk or shake the ingredients together in a lidded jar.

Cut the cucumbers in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds with the tip of a teaspoon. Slice lengthwise using a mandolin or vegetable peeler to make wafer-thin slices. Trim the radishes and thinly slice on the diagonal.

Put the arugula/rocket, mint, cucumber, and radishes in a bowl and toss together with the dressing. Add the crumbled feta and toss lightly again, then scatter over the olives.

Divide the ingredients equally between two plates, piling them up in a mound. Serve with ciabatta or other crusty bread.
