Cucumber is really nice warm and this makes a fresh salad that is a good side dish--especially with fish, lax, or chicken. Perfect for those summer barbecues. I always sprinkle a bit more mustard seeds when I think it's enough!

Directions

  1. Peel the cucumber lengthwise, scoop out the seeds with a spoon and cut into pieces.
  2. Put in a colander and sprinkle with a little salt, to draw out water.
  3. Put some oil/butter in a medium hot pan cover the bottom with mustard seeds and wait for them to pop; meanwhile chop the onion finely and the parsley roughly.
  4. Pour excess water off the cucumber pieces and put them in the pan; stir around just so they get warm--a couple of minutes.
  5. Sprinkle with onion and parsley, give it a stir and serve.
