Yesterday I wrote about my crystal apple cucumbers. This luscious dip is the only thing I’ve done with my cucumbers so far. My intention was to do tsatsiki but as I didn’t have any yoghurt I made up this dip instead. I served it with grape-leaf dolmades and bread, and it was lovely.
How many things can you actually do with cucumbers other than salad or tsatsiki? I’ve read about frying cucumbers, but it doesn’t sound right. I’ve seen soup recipes as well, but nothing that I really want to do. What is your favourite fresh cucumber recipe?
Cucumber, mint and feta dip
100 gram feta cheese
100 ml sour cream
1.5 tsp fresh mint, finely chopped
3-4 crystal apple cucumbers (or around 140 gram cucumber), coursely grated
Mash the feta cheese with a fork, you still want small chunks and not a smooth mixture. Combine with sour cream, mint and grated cucumbers.
