Spicy Cucumber and Chilli Salad Recipe
The spicy chilli invites a taste sensation and is ultimately a match made in heaven paired with a cool-cucumber and vinegar topping.
The entire meal takes about 5 minutes to prepare, and is washed down best with a refreshing fruit juice, or a sneaky white wine during the later hours of the evening.
1 tsp peppercorns
1/2 tsp chilli flakes
Splash of lemon juice
1/4 clove of garlic
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp Greek yoghurt
2 cucumbers (sliced)
Pinch of chives
Pinch of parsley
Season with salt and pepper
- Finely chop the cucumbers and set aside. For extra crunch, leave the skin on and slice horizontally.
- Crush the peppercorns and chilli flakes until they have combined. Add the garlic, salt and pepper to taste.
- Add the lemon juice, olive oil, and yoghurt. Mix well, then toss with the cucumber and other herbs for a fresh taste.
