Grated Cucumber and Mint Salad

This salad is particularly suited to the short knobbly ‘ridge’ cucumbers that crop up from time to time during the season. They have a slightly stronger flavour and less watery texture than the usual ones. The orange blossom water lends an exotic perfume to the dish but isn’t essential.



  • 1 Long or two short cucumbers,
  • 3 tbsp olive oil,
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice,
  • 1 tsp orange flower water,
  • salt,

1 tbsp chopped fresh mint.  


  1. Peel and grate the cucumber.
  2. Sprinkle with salt and leave to drain in a colander for a few minutes.
  3. Press down briefly to remove a little surplus water before mixing with the rest of the ingredients.
