Mummy’s Cucumber – “Nothing amazing, just simple, tasty, healthy food.”

My mother has always done the best cucumbers on the planet.

You can’t deny it, you never tried them!

So, she gave me her little recipe that I am sharing with you here.

Nothing amazing, nothing fancy, just simple good healthy food.

Ingredients

You will need :

  • a cucumber,
  • half lime or half a lemon,
  • herbs (Mint, Basil, Thyme, Rosemary)
  • coarse salt
  • some time
  • optional fresh cream

Start by peeling the cucumber

Then cut it into thin slices

Add the coarse salt and don’t hesitate to put a lot, you will rinse it afterwards.

Leave it to disgorge in the fridge for a few hours.

I have used the Mint and Thyme from my balcony, and the last miserable stem left on my Basil (as someone forgot to water it whilst I was in Corsica)

My Rosemary did not make it to the end of summer (not enough watering as well), but it always taste so good, so don’t forget to add some if you have the occasion.
