Croatian cucumber salad

I served this simple Croatian cucumber salad to accompany the prawns alla busara we had for dinner last night. The recipe seemed so simple, I hadn’t intended to post it.

But it was so crisp, cool and refreshing that I changed my mind.

Croatian cucumber salad

  • half a large cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 Tb white wine vinegar
  • 1 Tb olive oil
  • 3 Tb water
  • salt and pepper
  • chilli flakes (optional)
  1. Toss the cucumber slices with the garlic, vinegar, olive oil and water.
  2. Season with salt, pepper and chilli flakes (if desired), and toss again.
  3. Chill for at least half an hour before serving.

Family score: 8 out of 10

    Sounds like a grand use for my abundance of cucumbers. And I like the make ahead part of it.

      Seemed to improve with a bit of chilling time as well

    Sometimes the best thing is to keep it simple 🙂
