Recipe by Is This Really Necessary
I was surprised to see that, although quite a number of cucumber-dill recipes are available, nobody seems to have hit on the combination with feta cheese. Light and summery. Good for picknicks as well -- in that case bring the cheese separately and add just before serving. Good-quality olive oil is essential.
- 2 English cucumbers
- 3 scallions
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
- fresh cracked pepper
- 1 bunch dill, chopped
- 50 g feta cheese
Directions See How It's Made
- Half the cucumbers length-wise. Remove the seeds. Slice into thin ribbons. Put in strainer with some salt and allow to drain for about 10 mins (the salt will draw out some of the moisture from the cucumber). Slice the white part of the scallions thinly. Cut the green part into very thin slivers.
- Prepare a dressing from the oil, vinegar, salt and pepper to taste. Mix the cucumber, scallions, dill, and dressing. Crumble the feta cheese over the salad and add pepper to taste.
