CUCUMBER AND MELON SALAD WITH A CHILLI AND HONEY DRESSING

I came across this recipe when looking for interesting ideas for what to do with cucumbers. This recipe, which I’ve adapted slightly from the original, is wonderfully whimsical and a juicy taste explosion.

Ingredients

  • 2-3 mediterrean cucumbers
  • 2 cayenne chillies
  • 2 Tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • ½ spanspek
  • 150g feta
  • ½ cup basil leaves
  • salt
  • freshly ground pepper

Method

Remove the rind from the melon and cut into long thin slices – a sharp knife or even a peeler will work. Julienne the cucumbers. Place melon and cucumbers into a bowl.

Cut feta into thin blocks and add to the bowl. Roughly chop basil leaves and sprinkle on the salad mix.

Dressing:
Finely chop the cayenne chillies. Whisk chillies, vinegar and honey in a small bowl. Gradually add in the olive oil, whisking constantly until mixed together; generously dressing with salt and pepper, according to taste.

Now drizzle dressing over and gently toss to coat salad.

Enjoy immediately or within a day if kept refrigerated.
