Bashed Cucumber & Radish Salad



This Bashed Cucumber & Radish Salad was simple to do but very tasty.




English cucumber


Rice wine vinegar – 2 tsp

Salt 1 tsp

Sugar 2 tsp

Grated ginger 1 tsp

Sesame oil/Garlic oil

Black sesame seeds (I didn't have any so left them out)




Put the vinegar, salt, sugar and ginger into a bowl and mix.


Peel the cucumber long ways but in alternating stripes.  Halve the cucumber and scoop out the seeds with a spoon.  Chop into largish pieces.


Bash the cucumber firmly but not too hard on the cut side– the pieces will split.  Beware of pieces flying out onto the floor – and no, I didn't put them back.


Add the bashed cucumber to the bowl of dressing.  Stir and leave it in the fridge for at least 20 minutes.


After that there will be more dressing because of the water drawn out of the cucumber.  Add halved radishes and a teaspoon full of sesame oil/ mixed with a little garlic oil.  Mix it all together.


I didn't have any black sesame seeds so I just popped a dill frond on top.
