    Zurie's Note:

    A very simple, nicely tangy salad, which goes well with roast meat or chicken. Can be dressed up or down, of course. If possible, add South African piquante peppers (Peppadews), torn up, to this salad. Use a firm, long English cucumber and very young, fresh green beans. Prep time includes 15 mins. marinating time.

    1. 1
      First make the marinade by whisking together the vinegar, sugar, mustard, pepper. Don't add all the sugar at once: taste it first. We don't like it too acidic, so adjust to your taste.
    2. 2
      Top the washed beans, keep whole, and parboil for 30 seconds if it's the fine, pencil-thin beans. For thicker beans, parboil for a minute. Rinse under cold water. If not very thin, slice them in two along their lengths.
    3. 3
      With a potato peeler, peel ribbons from the cucumber, on all sides, until you reach the inside seeds. Discard the centre seed part. Roll the ribbons roughly.
    4. 4
      Mix the vegetables plus the chopped spring onions in a bowl, and add the marinade and salt. Leave for 10 - 30 minutes, turning a few times.
    5. 5
      Lift the salad out of the marinade (the cucumber will have shed some water too), and leave on a scrunch of kitchen paper just so most of the marinade is absorbed.
    6. 6
      Pile on a plate, add the piquante pepper pieces if using, and sprinkle with coarse black pepper.
