Thai Cucumber Salad

This is so gorgeously fresh and delicious.

Peel and slice a whole cucumber. Put in a sieve and sprinkle with salt. Leave to drain for 1 hour. Prepare a green chilli by removing seeds (don't rub your eyes) and slicing finely. Add 2 tsps caster sugar (or to taste) to 4 tblspns white wine or rice vinegar and stir to dissolve.

Add finely chopped chilli to dressing. Put the cucumber in serving dish and pour over dressing. Leave to absorb flavour for 30 mins, and serve cold.

Very good with sate skewers and rice.
